According to Fowler, teams are expected to have trade interest in Harry, who will be looking for an offense that will utilize him in contested catch situations including in the red zone and deep down the field.
Fowler mentions that a speed and precision-based offense likely won’t be a great fit for Harry’s skillset from here.
As for compensation, Fowler mentions that the Patriots could end up getting something close to a conditional sixth-round pick for Harry.
Earlier in the week, the agent for Harry formally requested New England trade his client.

It’s been an open secret that Harry was on the block for New England this offseason. In fact, one report indicated the Patriots wanted a fourth-round pick for Harry at the time.
Harry, 23, was the No. 32 overall pick by the Patriots out of Arizona State in 2019. He signed a four-year, $10,265,750 rookie contract with the Patriots that included a $5,486,000 signing bonus.
The Patriots will have a fifth-year option to pick up on Harry next offseason.
In 2020, Harry appeared in 14 games for the Patriots and caught 33 passes for 309 yards and two touchdowns.
