Deonte Harty Signs With Ravens

Former All-Pro return man and wide receiver Deonte Harty signed an undisclosed one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday. In his lone season with the Buffalo Bills last year, Harty had 15 receptions for 150 yards and one touchdown in 16 regular-season games (one start) on offense. The 26-year-old former undrafted free agent out of Assumption will likely make his biggest impact in Baltimore as a kick returner to help replace Devin Duvernay while also providing receiver depth behind Zay Flowers, Rashod Bateman and Nelson Agholor. Harty is unlikely to be much of a fantasy asset. In his four seasons with the New Orleans Saints to begin his career, Harty had 64 catches (92 targets) for 793 yards and four touchdowns in 40 games (four starts).

Deonte Harty Visiting With Ravens Friday

Former Buffalo Bills wide receiver and return man Deonte Harty is visiting with the Baltimore Ravens on Friday. Harty is a Baltimore native and could provide some decent receiving depth for the Ravens in 2024 behind Zay Flowers, Rashod Bateman and Nelson Agholor now that it's looking unlikely that the team will re-sign Odell Beckham Jr. The 26-year-old entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Assumption in 2019 with the New Orleans Saints and was a first-team All-Pro as a returner in his rookie year. Baltimore also lost returner Devin Duvernay this offseason, so Harty would be a natural fit in the return game to replace him on special teams. With just 79 receptions (113 targets) for 943 yards and five touchdowns on offense in his five seasons in the NFL, Harty isn't really on the fantasy radar.

Bills Release Deonte Harty

The Buffalo Bills released wide receiver and return specialist Deonte Harty on Wednesday, according to Ari Meirov of The 33rd Team. Harty signed a two-year, $9.5 million deal with the team last offseason after spending four seasons with the New Orleans Saints. The release of Harty saves the organization $4.2 million on the cap. A product of Assumption University of Division II, Harty has hauled in 79 of his 113 targets for 943 yards and five touchdowns through the first 56 games of his career. In 2023, he caught just 15 passes for 150 yards and one score. However, he finished fifth among all players in average yards per punt return (12.42) and returned one for a touchdown. He will likely have a decent free-agent market as a return specialist.

Decent chance at roster spot

Special teams coach Matthew Smiley mentioned Harty and Khalil Shakir this week as top options to replace Nyheim Hines (knee) as the team's primary returners this season, Patrick Warren of the Bills' official site reports. "Deonte had a lot of success in New Orleans on punt return, especially earlier in his career," Smiley said. "I think that it's always nice that somebody has NFL reps so his comfort level at that position is definitely a benefit."
