Career NFL statistics
Timothy David Harris (born September 10, 1964) is a former American football linebacker and defensive end who played for the Green Bay Packers (1986–1990), the San Francisco 49ers (1991–1992, 1994–1995), and the Philadelphia Eagles (1993). He played college football at the University of Memphis and was selected by the Packers in the 4th round of the 1986 NFL Draft.
Harris was a key defensive player for a Packers team that finished 10-6 during the 1989 season, their best record since 1972. The team was referred to the "Cardiac Pack" because of several close games wins. Harris finished that season with a career best 19.5 sacks and was selected to the Pro Bowl. Later in his career, he recorded 17 sacks as part of the 1992 San Francisco team that reached the NFC Championship Game. Two seasons later, he would earn a Super Bowl ring as the 49ers won Super Bowl XXIX.
Harris was a talkative, outgoing player whose signature celebration after a sack was "six gun" hand gestures whereby he pretended to shoot the opposing player. The NFL eventually banned his celebration as overly aggressive and unsportsmanlike.
