Damien Harris discusses excitement about joining Buffalo Bills
Former Alabama running back Damien Harris was selected in the third round of the 2019 NFL draft by the New England Patriots and was a key contributor to the team’s offense during his time with the franchise. As a free agent in 2023, Harris decided to sign with a fellow AFC East team, the Buffalo Bills.
The move is one of many this offseason that saw players from inside that specific division move to one of the other three teams in the division.
Harris is still only 26 years old and has a whole career ahead of him. In 2022, he appeared in 11 games where he ran for 462 yards and three touchdowns.
During recent media availability, Harris discussed how excited he is to be with the Buffalo Bills.
“I’m excited to be here,” said Harris during his introductory press conference earlier this week. “There’s a lot of reasons why I chose here, this is a great organization, from top to bottom, from ownership to the management to the coaching the players, the entire staff, I feel like the transition into a great organization, it’s just obviously so appealing. The trajectory of this organization, kind of the momentum that this team is building, it’s all appealing. And it’s all something that I wanted to be a part of and something that I felt like I could come in and help with.”
He also went on to say, “I can finally say it now, but I love Bills Mafia.”
