The former undrafted free agent out of Assumption was a find for New Orleans, earning All-Pro honors as a rookie return man. Harty (formerly Harris) also emerged as a weapon on offense with his quickness and blazing speed.
However, the 5-foot-6, 170 pounder played just four games last season while slowed by a toe injury. He had just two receptions for 13 yards in 2022. The previosu season, Harty caught 36 passes for 570 yards with three touchdowns.
The 25-year old Harty has career averages of 25.4 yards per kick return and 9.8 yards per punt return.
