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.
