Eric Wayne Harris (born August 11, 1955 in Memphis, Tennessee) is a former gridiron football defensive back. Drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in 1977, Harris was convinced to play Canadian football in the Canadian Football League by Leo Cahill. He played for the Toronto Argonauts from 1977-1979. He then played American football for six seasons in the National Football League for the Kansas City Chiefs (1980-1982) and the Los Angeles Rams (1983-1985).

February 27, 1981, The Committee of 101 12th Annual salute to professional football presented Eric with the Mack Lee Hill Award. “Eric Harris wasted no time making an imprint on both his team and the National Football League. “We had a super secondary,” says Marc Levy, “but it wouldn’t have been super without Eric.” The former Canadian Football League all-star was second on the Chiefs with seven interceptions. He had a string of six consecutive games, Oct. 19 through Nov. 23, in which he intercepted a pass per game. Harris was drafted on the fourth round by the Chiefs in 1977, but played three years with Toronto of the CFL before coming to Kansas City. He became a starter at right cornerback the third week of regular season. His seven interceptions represented a quarter of the Chiefs 28 total. Harris also accounted for 50 tackles on the season, 41 unassisted.” Source: Program for “The Committee of 101 presents Kansas City’s 12th Annual Salute to Professional Football.
