Saints defensive back De’Vante Harris is an undrafted rookie trying to show his worth and make an NFL career for himself by impressing on special teams. Instead, he made one of the more dramatic misplays possible, obliterating his teammate Tommylee Lewis as Lewis tried to catch a punt.

As Lewis tried to track and catch the ball, Harris barreled in and completely decked him. Worried the ball had taken a bounce off his prone teammate, Harris then tried to pick up the wobbling ball off a...
