Patriots keeping safety Duron Harmon as part of busy day

As the Patriots reshape their secondary in a hurry, they’re keeping one valuable member.

Via Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, they’re keeping safety Duron Harmon.

The former third-rounder is their third safety (behind Devin McCourty and Patrick Chung) in certain packages, and plays over half their snaps.

He has nine interceptions in four seasons.

Coupled with a deal for cornerback Stephon Gilmore, Logan Ryan’s free agency and a possible deal involving Malcolm Butler, it’s a busy day for their defense.

    Another piece of the puzzle back in place.

    Excellent. Thought for sure he’d be headed elsewhere.

    Pleased but surprised with that deal getting done quickly, thought sure someone would overpay for him.

    Duron, I’m still troubled that you opted to leap over Jermain Kearse and his circus catch in SB XLIX rather than drill him and separate him from the football and reality.

    Absent Malcolm, that faux pas nearly led to another disappointing finish.

    Keep Butler.

    Harmon is a solid 3rd safety behind McCourty and Chung. The Patriots actually use 3 safeties a lot, so this is a good consistency signing.

    The secondary looks good with Gilmore Harmon Chung McCourty and Rowe, it would look amazing with Butler too but wondering if will be traded or kept. I am surprised Bill offered to pay Gilmore and not Butler but maybe he thinks Butler can net him something whether it is a high pick or a player (e.g. Cooks).

    Harmon is a playmaker. Love the move.

    Square away Butler and/or Hightower and we’re good.
