NAPA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders brought back linebacker Napoleon Harris four years after trading him in a deal for Randy Moss and released cornerback Ricky Manning Jr.
The Raiders made the move Monday after losing linebacker Kirk Morrison to a dislocated elbow on Saturday. Morrison is expected to
miss two weeks and the Raiders needed more depth at middle linebacker.
Harris was a first-round pick by the Raiders in 2002 before being dealt to Minnesota in the deal that brought Moss to Oakland in 2005. He spent two years with the Vikings before going to Kansas City in 2007. He went back to Minnesota last season and started five games for the Vikings.
