Harris was a restricted free agent that the Vikings tendered to a “right of first refusal” level, but his signing on Tuesday locks him up with the club for at least another year.
Harris played in 12 games with the Vikings last year after they claimed him off waivers from the San Diego Chargers on Aug. 31. He played for Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner in San Diego in 2012.
Last year, Harris started the final five games of the season in place of the injured Phil Loadholt. He also has some experience playing guard in the NFL.
Harris entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent from UCLA for the Chargers in 2012 and played there in 2013 as well.
