It’s been an open secret that Harry was on the block for New England this offseason. So far, the team either hasn’t found any takers or hasn’t been willing to accept the offers — one report indicated the Patriots wanted a fourth-round pick for Harry.
In the statement, Harry’s agent says he believes a fresh start is best for both sides and he wants to make sure Harry is on a different team before training camp.
Going public like this is their way of trying to increase the pressure on New England to get a deal done.
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.
We’ll have more on Harry as the news is available.
