Harris, a former fourth-round pick out of NC State by the Tennessee Titans in 2007, played as a reserve for the first three seasons of his career, but has started 39 games for the Titans the last three seasons.
He became a mainstay in the Titans lineup in 2010, taking over at left guard. He played right guard last season, and can also play center.
The Lions covet that kind of versatility among their interior linemen.
Harris (6-3, 303) missed the final eight games of the season last year after suffering a partially torn ACL in an Oct. 28 loss to the Colts.
Harris turns 29 later this week and adds a veteran presence to the unit. He’ll compete with Larry Warford, Rodney Austin, Dylan Gandy, Bill Nagy and Derek Hardman for playing time upfront.
