Giants By The Numbers: 97 Is For ...

Robert Harris.

Surprisingly, Harris is a fairly recent player who I still have zero recollection of. Maybe I'm just getting old. Harris, though, played for the Giants from 1995-99 after spending three seasons with the Minnesota Vikings and posted some impressive numbers.

He had 24 sacks in five seasons spent mostly at left defensive tackle, including 10 in 1997. He also had 129 solo tackles as a Giant. He was a full-time starter his first four seasons in New York.

Other Notables Who Wore No. 97
  • Cornelius Griffin (DT, 2000-2003). Had 12.5 sacks in four seasons before moving on to the Washington Redskins as a free agent. Griffin teased the Giants with a five-sack rookie season, but never matched that productivity again until after he left New York. He played 14 games for Washington last season and is still a productive NL player.
  • Mathias Kiwanuka wore 97 his first three seasons in New York before switching to 94 last season. He had his best pro season in 2008 while wearing 97, registering eight sacks.
  • Warren Thompson, a linebacker, was the first player I can find who wore the 97 jersey as a Giant. He played just three games in 1987, and had two sacks.
