Why are y’all hating? It’s a 7th rounder and a smart move concerning Takks inability to finish a season healthy and also likely attitude to having his 5th season declined. Cry about not having depth t

For a 7th rounder... why not. We will have a 7th round compensatory pick anyway. I dont think this is a bad move at all.

3.5 sacks in three seasons, albeit with a terrible team. Depth pick - hopefully we didn't give up more than a seventh or sixth at the most!

Not feeling it...maybe better than Takk though

The Miami Dolphins’ roster reclamation extends well beyond just adding new players via the NFL Draft or picking up key veterans in free agency. The Dolphins are also tasked with making some key personnel decisions with players still on the roster — but may not make sense to keep in the picture.

One of those players is defensive end Charles Harris — who to this point goes down as easily general manager Chris Grier’s biggest bust since 2016. Harris entered year three of his career with the Dolphins facing pressure to perform — Miami needed someone to step up on the edge and serve as the team’s primary pass rush threat. Who better to do it than a former 1st-round pick?

Apparently literally everyone.

Because Harris finished the season with one half of a single sack on the year, bringing his career total through 41 games to 3.5. Needless to say, Harris was bad this year. What’s more frustrating than anything is that Harris still seems to be the same player he was coming out of Missouri — he’s got one rush move and anyone who is able to place hands on him is going to eliminate him from the play.

So where do the Dolphins go from here? They’ve got some options. But one thing that should be for certain is that Harris shouldn’t be on Miami’s roster next season. This just working out, and sometimes a change of scenery is what is best for everyone.

That’d be the exact pitch Miami should give other teams who liked Harris in the pre-draft process as the Dolphins try to get something of value in a potential trade. If the Dolphins can get something…literally anything in a trade for Harris, it is a win. With a base salary under $2M for 2020, Harris would be a cheap roll of the dice for someone. But the odds are Harris is doomed to the same fate that was suffered by a fellow busted 1st-round pass rusher from 2017, Taco Charlton.

The Cowboys cut him last September. They’d seen enough and knew Charlton wasn’t going to turn the corner — at least not in Dallas. So they cut their losses and moved on. That should be Miami’s worst case scenario if they can’t create a cheap trade for Harris.

 

Oh God please be a 7th rounder

Ok, I remember him in college, he was good at Missouri.  Has not continued in the NFL, I like that the Falcons have picked up a guy they feel can do the job. Its just about getting the best out of him now.  Didn't put up high level numbers at the combine.  He is a body, but they have to have enough guys.  Interesting that they traded for him.  Not sure what they see.
