Harris, who threw for 4157 yards and 20 touchdowns with the Montreal Alouettes last season, essentially trades places with Cody Fajardo with the former Riders QB signing with the Als on Tuesday.
The Green and White also signed receivers Jake Weineke and Juwan Brescacin, as well as defensive linemen Micah Johnson and Stefan Banks. Former Riders receiver Shaq Evans signed with Ottawa and Duke Williams, another receiver, is off to Hamilton.
