Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) – Browns general manager John Dorsey isn’t stopping with Odell Beckham Jr.

Dorsey intends to sign Chiefs tight end Demetrius Harris to a two-year deal a league source confirmed to 92.3 The Fan.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported the agreement.

Harris, who is 6-foot-7, 230 pounds, was signed by Dorsey as an undrafted free agent in 2013 when Dorsey was GM of the Chiefs out of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

In five seasons with Kansas City, Harris has 57 catches for 605 yards and six touchdowns – three of those coming in 2018.
