The San Francisco 49ers continue to play musical chairs in a depleted backfield as they announced the signing of RB DuJuan Harris. The 5-7, 205, running back was most recently on the Baltimore Ravens practice squad before signing on with San Francisco.
Originally an undrafted rookie free-agent in 2011 with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Harris has been around the league since as he’s played for four other teams including the Green Bay Packers (2012-2014), New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks, and Ravens.
A shifty running back who can shake defenders between the tackles, it will be interesting to see how 49ers OC Geep Chryst will use him. During his Pro Day, Harris put up a 4.44 40-yard dash, 38.5-inch vertical, while knocking out an impressive 27 reps on the bench press at 225.
Why not just activate #49ers RB Jarryd Hayne. Two games left and many would love to see his progress up to this point, right or nah?

To make room on the roster for Harris the team elected to waive RB Travaris Cadet. The Appalachian state product signed with the 49ers as a free agent on November 10, 2015. He appeared in four games this season and registered seven carries for 16 yards while adding an additional seven receptions for 66 receiving yards.
