Predicting a trade: Vikings trade S Anthony Harris to Washington for a 4th round pick

Former University of Virginia safety Anthony Harris returns home to play for his hometown Washington Football Team. Vikings land a 4th round pick for him.

Anthony Harris is coming home! Yep, the former UVA safety is returning to the DMV to play for his hometown Washington Football Team.

The Vikings franchised Harris and it cost them quite a bit of money but if they were able to trade him there would be an instant cash savings for 11 plus million.

The Washington Football Team offers up a 4th round pick for the 29 year old safety. Washington needs a safety with Landon Collins suffering a torn Achilles. They are able to land a starting safety and re-work his contract to get him in on a team friendly deal.

Harris attended the University of Virginia, where he played for the Virginia Cavaliers football team from 2011 to 2014. He started 35 of the 49 games he played at Virginia. Harris ended his collegiate career with 289 tackles (145 solo and 6 for loss), 11 interceptions, 2 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 19 passes defensed. His 11 interceptions tied him for No. 10 all-time in program history.

Harris is a Richmond, Virginia native and is able to return home. The Vikings are rebuilding and know it is better to get anything right now rather than letting him walk in free agency, that is why the price is cheap.
