Wide receiver Marcus Harris tweeted on Wednesday night that he will not return to the New York Giants in 2016.

Harris, nicknamed "Soup," excited the fan base during the 2014 preseason when he caught nine passes for 93 yards and showed value on special teams. Shoulder and hip injuries, however, forced him to IR before the season began. Last season, knee surgery again sent him to IR.

Harris, 27, has been with the Detroit Lions, Tennessee Titans and Giants in a career that began in 2011. He has never played in a regular-season game. Harris also spent time with teams in the Arena Football League and United Football League.

The Giants also recently parted ways with offensive linemen Will Beatty and Geoff Schwartz as they begin re-shaping their roster. Free-agent cornerback Prince Amukamara said Wednesday he does not expect a deal with the Giants before free agency. The Giants did, however, re-sign long-snapper Zack DeOssie on Wednesday.
