Insight: Harris has amassed triple-digit sack totals three out of the past four years and has led the team in tackles over the last two. A key cog in the Jets Defense, it makes sense for him to be franchised over offensive free agents Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards. Harris will make roughly $10 million if a new extension isn't worked out before the start of the regular season.

Description: ILB David Harris became the latest Jet to express hope that he gets a new contract this offseason.

Description: Harris (ankle) is listed as questionable for the wild card game against the Bengals.
Insight: Both he and the team are saying he'll play, so that's definitely great news for owners of the Jets' team defense. Harris is their leading tackler and the job of limiting Cedric Benson would have been much tougher without him in the lineup. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Harris had 11 tackles during the Jets' 24-7 win against the Texans on Sunday. He also had a sack in the game.

9/3/2009 11:45:00 AM
Description: According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Denver Broncos would ask for Harris in return in any trade scenario involving WR Brandon Marshall.
Insight: It still seems unlikely that Marshall gets traded, but he may be leaving the Broncos no choice. The Jets do have a need at wide receiver. (SportsBuff.com)
