Former Ticat Erik Harris still sporting the Black and Gold

Erik Harris hasn’t suited up for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats since 2015 but he’s still repping the Ticats ‘gear in his current locker room.

Harris, now a defensive back and special teams ace with the Oakland Raiders, was interviewed this week while wearing his Black and Gold hoodie.




Harris has played 13 games for the Raiders this season, making five tackles after coming back from a torn ACL he suffered last year. He played four games for the New Orleans Saints in 2016 before getting hurt.

He was recently on the Pro Bowl ballot as a special teamer.

The 27-year-old played in 45 regular season games over three seasons with the Ticats, making 79 defensive tackles and another 27 on special teams. He also caught a touchdown pass. He stays in touch with a number of former teammates and coaches via social media.

Harris will spend Christmas playing Monday Night Football in Philadelphia against the Eagles. Sounds like the game made for some easy Christmas shopping…

And those twin boys that were born while Harris played for the Ticats? Yeah, they’re as cute as ever.
