Claude Harriott (born April 8, 1981) is a former American football defensive end.

Early years[edit]

Harriott played high school football at Glades Central Community High School in Belle Glade, Florida. He played college football at Pittsburgh.

Professional career[edit]

Harriott began his professional career in the National Football League by being drafted by the Chicago Bears in the fifth round of the 2004 NFL Draft. He did not make the roster, being released in the final cut.

In January 2005, he signed with the New York Giants but was released that April.

In 2006, Harriott signed with the Detroit Lions and was allocated to the Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europa. He appeared in World Bowl XIV. Returning to Detroit, he attended training camp but again was released in the final cut. He was signed to the active roster in December but did not play.

Being released by the Lions in September 2007, he signed to the practice squad of the Kansas City Chiefs where he remained until December. He then re-signed with Detroit.

In 2008, he attended training camp with the Lions but was again released in the final cut.

On September 15, 2008, Harriott signed a practice roster agreement with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League and joined the active roster on September 20. His performance in the seven final games of the season with 20 defensive tackles, 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 3 tackles for a loss, and 1 pass knockdown impressed the Argos enough to extend his contract through the 2010 CFL season. On May 27, 2010, the Argonauts released him, stating his knee injury as the primary reason.[1][2]
