Biography

PRO: DaJohn Harris was signed by the Titans as an undrafted free agent on May 8, 2012.  The 6-foot-3-inch, 306-pounder possesses a unique blend athleticism and power allowing him to be a disruptive force in the middle of the defensive front.  Harris was one of two 2012 rookie free agents to make the initial active roster at the start of the season.  He appeared in seven games as a rookie and collected five tackles.
