Linebacker David Harris is officially a member of the Patriots.

Word of Harris’ agreement with the defending champions came on Wednesday, but the move was announced by the team on Thursday along with the roster move they made to clear space for Harris’ arrival. They have waived wide receiver DeAndrew White.

Harris, who was released by the Jets earlier this month after 10 seasons with the team, signed a two-year deal with New England with a reported base value of $5 million. He’s the latest acquisition in a busy offseason that has seen New England use their cap space to add veterans all over a roster that was already coming off of a Super Bowl title.

White made the 49ers as an undrafted rookie in 2015 and played in four games. He caught two passes and returned six kickoffs in those appearances and moved on to the Patriots practice squad after getting cut last year. He’ll now have the chance to catch on elsewhere before training camp and may face shorter odds than he did with a Patriots team well-stocked with wideouts.

    Unless Belichick pulls off some unexpected maneuver, there’s very few roster spots available for newcomers.

  2. • In 2014 Roger Goodell pledged more transparency.

    • In 2015 Roger Goodell said that “the integrity of the league was the most important thing”.

    • At the end of the 2015 NFL season the Roger Goodell hid the PSI information that was collected during the 2015 season.

    • Roger Goodell decided to hide the PSI information at the end of the 2015 season, which is the opposite of the transparency and integrity that he had recently promised.

  3. Seemed like a foregone conclusion he would end up in New England when the Jets cut him.

    What a great signing to improve an area on the team that might be the one that lacked the most talent and depth. Not anymore.

    Barring major injury, this team NOT winning the Super Bowl would be more of an upset than coming back from 28-3 to win this past one.

  4. An interesting approach BB took this year using cap space and trades to select proven veterans vs. the gamble and low cost of draft picks. If I didn’t think he was planning to surpass Don Shula as HC with most wins I would say he is stacking this team for one or 2 more Super Bowls and then let someone else deal with the expensive and aging roster.

  5. It’s all over for the Patriots this year. Raiders are up and coming for your title. You had a great run. Now it’s time to turn the page.

    Not likely….or else Raider fans wouldn’t be obsessed and still trolling Patriot articles.

    Judging by the number of up votes you received all the Raider fans are still obsessed with Patriot articles. Which only means that Raider fans know who is still the boss.
