Harris and the Vikings have until July 15 to agree to a long-term contract.
The 28-year-old defensive back arrived in the NFL in 2015 out of Virginia. He first earned special teams snaps before becoming a starting safety in the highly-talented Minnesota defense in 2018.
Harris tied for a league-lead six interceptions during the 2019 season, totaling nine picks over the previous two seasons. He also has 180 tackles and 11 passes defensed in his five seasons.
