The Lions received solid production from their wide receivers in the first quarter of the season.
But as they begin their bye week, they're looking at reinforcements.
Harris, who spent the first three years of his career with the Redskins after going undrafted out of Cal, could have won a spot on the Patriots roster if not for a foot injury he suffered in the latter stages of camp. He was cut shortly thereafter.
Amendola should be back soon, so Harris isn't necessarily a potential replacement. Per Garafolo, he's "just a guy they’ve been keeping an eye on." Plus, he's more of an outside target with his 6'3 frame.
Harris played in 12 games (seven starts) last season for the Redskins, grabbing 28 catches for 304 yards.
