JACKSONVILLE – The Jacksonville Sharks announced several transactions on Friday, as the team has reactivated wide receiver Jeron Harvey from injured reserve and has been assigned offensive lineman Chris Jamison. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 30-year-old Harvey (6’5”, 220) has played in nine games this season, serving as a regular starter at wide receiver before being placed on injured reserve on June 10. Harvey returns to the lineup as the team’s third-leading receiver, as he has caught 70 passes for 819 yards and 17 touchdowns. Harvey racked up six consecutive multi-touchdown games from Week 6 through Week 11, hauling in a season-high of three scores against the Tampa Bay Storm on May 24.

Harvey in the midst of his fifth season with the Sharks, as he joins defensive back Micheaux Robinson and offensive lineman Isaac Morales as one of three players to suit up for Jacksonville in each of the team’s seasons as a franchise. Harvey is the Sharks’ all-time leader in every major receiving category. For his career, Harvey has totaled 454 receptions for 4,823 yards and 121 touchdowns. A Jacksonville native who attended Jackson High School, Harvey played college football at the University of Houston.

The 28-year-old Jamison (6’2”, 295) is a fourth-year AFL veteran who joins the Sharks after spending three-plus seasons with the Orlando Predators. Jamison made eight starts in 11 appearances with Orlando during the early part of this season. While Jamison has seen most of his action along the offensive line, he did log significant time at fullback during the 2012 campaign, totaling 29 carries for 97 yards and four touchdowns while adding eight receptions for 58 yards and a score.

Jamison first broke into the AFL with the Predators in 2011, making eight starts during his rookie season. A native of Columbus, Georgia, Jamison attended Troy University.

The Sharks also announced Friday that the team has placed offensive lineman Cornelius Lewis on inactive reserve and has placed wide receiver Maurice Dupree on recallable reassignment. Following the moves, the Jacksonville roster remains at the League maximum of 24 active players.
