The New England Patriots have at least one issue to handle at the moment. A Patriots reporter has a solution to the issue called N’Keal Harry. The former first-round pick turned out to be a huge disappointment for the Patriots. Head coach Bill Belichick had high expectations from the receiver, but Harry didn’t meet any of this.
That’s not all. Harry requested a trade last offseason. He did it publicly through his agent. Things changed in training camp and Harry spent the entire season with the team. He was a Patriot, but Belichick didn’t use him a lot. It was so bad that Harry was a healthy scratch for the team.
Harry has been linked to so many teams in the NFL. Teams have shown interest in him, but he is still in New England. It’s interest to note that Harry didn’t join his teammates in OTAs.
Is this the end of an era?
Patriots reporter advised N’Keal Harry
Belichick traded for DeVante Parker and also selected Tyquan Thornton in the NFL Draft. The arrival of these two may affect Harry’s future with the team. He is young, but he is not a good fit for the team.
Patriots players will soon enter minicamp. It’s mandatory and it will definitely say more about Harry’s position with the team. According to Mike Reiss, Harry should get work with another position group. Is this even possible?
“Harry, the 2019 first-round pick, is now a long shot to make the roster at his traditional position barring injuries ahead of him on the depth chart,” Reiss wrote in a column published Sunday. “Harry’s best chance might be to ask about a possible switch to tight end to compete with Asiasi and Keene as TE3 behind Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith.”
Harry could be a good fit at tight end. His frame is pretty similar to the one of tight ends. New England used Harry as blocker, but he can easily move to another position.
Harry and his agent have to make big decision. Will he get another chance?
