Top David Harris News

  • David Harris: Announces retirement from NFL

    Harris announced his retirement from the NFL on Friday, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

    Prior to his surprising release last summer, Harris was a consistent force in the middle of the Jets' defense for years after the team traded up to select the Michigan product in the second round of the 2007 draft. He ultimately racked up the second-most tackles in Jets history (1,087) during his 10 seasons with Gang Green and goes down as one of the team's all-time great defenders despite being perennially underrated by the media. Factoring in his one-year stint in New England, Harris will finish his career with 1,109 tackles, 36.5 sacks, six interceptions and 11 forced fumbles over 164 career games.

  • Patriots' David Harris: Records 1.5 sacks Sunday

    Harris compiled four tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks against the Bills on Sunday.

    This was the first full sack Harris has recorded since the 2015 season. Although he's listed as the top middle linebacker, Harris logged just 25 defensive snaps (37 percent). It was a decent showing for Harris, but until he can play a full workload, it'll be tough to become a top IDP threat.

  • Patriots' David Harris: Inactive Sunday

    Harris (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    One of multiple veterans purged from the rebuilding Jets roster in the offseason, Harris landed in New England on a two-year contract. The 33-year-old was expected to vie for a starting role, but with the Patriots settling on Dont'a Hightower, Kyle Van Noy and Elandon Roberts as their three linebackers, Harris hasn't been able to see regular action. Harris played just seven defensive snaps in the Patriots' first three games, and since he doesn't offer much value on special teams, the Patriots have since made him inactive in two of the past three weeks. Unless an injury to one of the aforementioned players opens up an opportunity, Harris' relevance in IDP formats appears to be over.

  • David Harris: Signing with Patriots

    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

    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.
