  • David Harris: Signing with Patriots
    By RotoWire Staff

    Harris is signing a two-year deal with the Patriots, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Released in early June as part of the Jets' offseason purge, the 33-year-old Harris will stay in the AFC East and help his former team's chief rival fill a major need next to Dont'a Hightower in the linebacking corps. Harris had at least 75 tackles in each of his 10 seasons with the Jets, falling shy of the century mark last season (95 in 15 games) for the first time since 2011. His days as a valuable IDP likely are a thing of the past, but he should help the New England run defense while also providing an occasional pass-rushing threat (35.5 career sacks).

  • David Harris: To be released
    By RotoWire Staff

    Harris is being released by the Jets, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Harris' tenure with the Jets comes to an end after 10 seasons, as he is the latest of a handful of veterans being released by the team this offseason. A second-round draft pick from Michigan, Harris was the backbone of the Jets' defense for several years, notching 1,088 tackles and 35.5 sacks during his 10 seasons in New York, missing only six games during that span. While the Jets are opting to get younger, Harris should attract the attention of several teams around the league looking to bolster their linebacking corps. At 33, it seems like the veteran still has something left in the tank, but he will likely need to take a major pay cut if he hopes to continue his career elsewhere.

  • Harris (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. Harris was back on the field as a full participant since injuring his hamstring in Week 5. The veteran appears likely to take the field against the Ravens, but could see his reps monitored due to the injury. If that is the case, expect Bruce Carter to see some expanded reps this Sunday.

  • Jets' David Harris: Returns to practice
    By RotoWire Staff

    Harris (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, ESPN reports. Harris suffered a hamstring injury in Week 5 and hadn't practiced since, also missing Monday's game against the Cardinals. Now back at practice, it seems he may have a chance of suiting up this week.

  • Jets' David Harris: Inactive Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Harris (hamstring) has been ruled inactive for Monday night's matchup with the Cardinals. This status is unsurprising considering Harris was downgraded to doubtful over the weekend, but it is still notable considering it is his first inactive since Week 13 of 2008. Bruce Carter figures to fill in for the veteran at inside linebacker.
