49ers one-hit wonder No. 2: EDGE Tim Harris (1992)

It’s hard to argue there was a greater one-hit wonder in 49ers history than former Green Bay Packers EDGE Tim Harris, whose first foray with the Niners beginning in 1991 didn’t exactly generate the eye-popping results many had hoped for.

Particularly in light of his All-Pro 1989 campaign in which he wowed with 19.5 sacks.

In 1992, however, Harris finally turned in that kind of a campaign and recorded his second-best total in that particular category, 17 sacks over 16 games played.

Exactly why Harris wasn’t selected for another All-Pro nod or even a Pro Bowl that season is anyone’s guess, but it’s still fair to make the argument he impacted San Francisco’s defense in a massive way.

Turns out, though, that memorable 1992 effort would be his last major thump at the NFL level.

Briefly joining the Philadelphia Eagles in 1993, Harris would return to the 49ers in 1994 and spent another two seasons, picking up an additional six sacks during that span.

Nothing close to that one-hit 1992 wonder, though.
