"The Hitman" is just two tackles shy of becoming just the fourth Jet to be credited with 1,000 career tackles. He's the main communicator for the defense, just one of the reasons defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman is appreciative of having Harris on his side: "David has played well. He's been a leader. He's been consistent. He's tackled well. He's improved in his pass coverage — except for last week when he dropped the interception, but we've forgiven him. He's become what we always thought he could be: a leader on our defense, a consistent guy that has manned the middle for us, has been good against the run and pass. I don't think we could've asked any more of David than he's given us."
