The Minnesota Vikings have signed another former Green Bay Packer.

The Vikings signed former Packers, Steelers and Jaguars running back DuJuan Harris to a one-year deal. The news was announced by his agent Andy Simms on Twitter on Thursday.

Harris, 26, rushed for 64 yards on 16 carries in 15 games with Green Bay last season, he also returned 22 kickoffs for 456 yards. He missed all of 2013 with a knee injury.

According to the Star Tribune, Harris' signing with the Vikings gives them seven running backs on their roster, including Matt Asiata, Joe Banyard, Henry Josey, Jerick McKinnon, Adrian Peterson and Domonique Williams.

The big cloud over the Vikings is whether or not Peterson will return in 2015. Wednesday, Vikings general manager Rick Spielman told Peterson's agent the Vikings all-time leading rusher wouldn't be released, but that doesn't mean Peterson won't be traded.

Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald brought up the possibility of a trade that would send Peterson to the Cardinals, when he called the potential deal a "game changer" on Wednesday.
