Video: Saints’ Deonte Harris takes punt return to the house for TD vs. Seahawks
There was plenty of speculation regarding the state of the New Orleans Saints’ offense without Drew Brees heading into Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. Punt returner Deonte Harris managed to prolong their debut by striking first on special teams.
Harris was able to get the Saints on the board with a 53-yard punt return for a touchdown early in the first quarter:
One move and GONE.

Harris signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent prior to the 2019 NFL season. Fortunately, the pint-sized playmaker was able to etch out a role for himself on special teams to make the final cut during the preseason.
It is safe to say that Harris has managed to make his presence felt quickly thus far. The 21-year-old came into Week 3 fielding two kick returns for 36 yards. He also had returned six punts for 54 yards before this score.
