Harris, an undrafted rookie out of USC, actually played 17 snaps in the preseason opener against the Titans two days after taking a red-eye flight from Los Angeles to Philly after agreeing to contract terms and had three tackles and a sack.

He played 101 snaps in all in the four preseason games, including 66 in the final against the Jets.

Harris originally was one of 29 tryout players the Eagles brought in during spring minicamp, but he wasn't offered a contract. He wound up working for a rental car company at LAX while waiting for an opportunity to join an NFL team.

Harris is the second cornerback the Eagles have added to the practice squad. They signed first-year pro Craig James from Southern Illinois last week.

At USC, the 5-foot-10, 185-pound Harris had six interceptions, including three pick-6's.
