Best quote from Deonte Harris' 2020 season:

"I mean, I'm just trying to make any contribution, whether it be offense or special teams. I mean, the end goal is to get a win, whether I get seven catches or zero. The end goal is just to try to make an impact in whichever way possible. I mean, if I get seven catches or however many catches, it'll be a good day. But, if I get zero catches and we win, I'm good with that, too."
