Among the seasons leading up to Harris on the state roster, former retiring Auburn William Andrews appeared three times.

Andrews spawned two of the three seasons at 2,000 yards from a brawl by a player of Alabama football origins. For the Atlanta Falcons, Andrews had 2,176 melee yards — 1,567 rushes and 609 receivers — in 1983 after having had 2036 — 1,301 yards and 735 yards — in 1981.

Another 2,000-yard season by a player from an Alabama high school or college in the NFL came in 2020, when former Alabama’s Derek Henry had 2,027 yards and 114 yards for the Tennessee Titans.

Andrews ranks ninth in his Alabama roots’ NFL career list for yards of scrimmage because a knee injury at training camp in his sixth season in the NFL ruined his career.

Wide receiver Terrell Owens has the maximum melee yards for a player from a high school or college in Alabama. His 16,185 yards ranked him 14th in NFL history.
