N’Keal Harry: I’m a Patriot right now and I’m very OK with being a Patriot

Patriots wide receiver N’Keal Harry has asked to be traded, but until that happens, he says he’s doing his job in New England.

“I’m a Patriot right now,” Harry said, via the Boston Herald. “I’m very OK with being a Patriot.”

Harry said that once he set foot on the practice field for training camp, the trade request wasn’t his priority.

“I’m not worried about anything trade-wise right now,” Harry said. “I’m at New England Patriots training camp, and I’m just trying to improve every day.”

A 2019 first-round draft pick of the Patriots, Harry has been a disappointment in New England, and there’s no guarantee that any team will give up anything to acquire him in a trade, or that he’ll even make the Patriots’ 53-man roster if he isn’t traded. So Harry might as well make the most of his opportunities in camp now, because he may not have many NFL opportunities left.

  1. If so then fire your agent. All making public trouble did was lower your trade value into a less lucrative idea for Pats and less desirable stock for other teams.

  2. The Pats would be very okay if some team would give them anything of value for this stiff.

    He hasn’t had a qb in his first 2 seasons. We shall see.

    Jakobi Meyers is a very good young WR because no one knows who he is since, he too, hasn’t really had a qb either.

    And there is Gunner Olzcewski who is on track after an All Pro STs year.

    What’s funny about this whole thing is, the pandemic narrative towards NE, gettin’ while the gettin’s is good, could be a complete 180 in 2021.

    The D and STs won 99% of the games the last 2 seasons.

  4. A fresh start would do both sides well, but I doubt the Pats are going to be able to get anything for him. Same with Sony Michel.

  5. If I’m Robert Kraft, I start the 2022 NFL draft off by kicking BB out of the war room and taking the best player available in the Lindy’s draft guide.

    Sony Michel was the postseason offensive mvp 3 seasons ago and a good rb who averaged over 5ypc last year on the worst offense in football.

    Do you watch the NFL? lol

    He had the best QB of all time in his 1st season, and that guy would know if he was good or not. He wasn’t. He was hurt (took his sweet time returning too) and when he wasn’t hurt, he never got open.

  9. It’s a 17 game season with still the threat of the virus being an issue….
    Sony & Harry will BOTH be on the team….they have experience in the system & now have either Mac Jones or a VERY NERVOUS YET MOTIVATED Cam Newton not wanting to lose his spot to lead them…
    Pats got too much invested in them both no matter what the press wants to run with…..
    Sony should be very motivated to play for his next contract this year & Harryis now in his PROVE IT YEAR for either staying on the Pats next year or to draw interest from another team to want to trade for him IF the Pats will even further entertain that option….
    Should be an interesting year for these two guys future Outlook for sure!!
    Go Pats!!!.

    Look up bill parcels/1996 NFLSraft/“groceries”. Mr. Kraft DID overrule parcels and took touchdown ferry from THE Ohio State University. Parcels wanted to go defense, and Kraft overruled him. After that, parcells was done with us in Foxborough. Hence why Belichick has complete control, he didn’t want meddling like parcels would do with the Jets, and what Kraft did in 1996.

  11. Harry hasn’t had a QB yet? He played with Brady in 2019. Brady said he knew he was a bust an hour into the 1rst workout

  12. “Very OK” doesn’t sound convincing. The flip side; he kind of extremely wants to be traded.

    Umm, Brady ignored him and then Meyers once Brady told BB to get Sanu. Do you even watch these games ot just look at box scores for fantasy football?

    Brady was pouting like a petulant child all year. He may be the GOAT, but his sabotaging of the season was an abomination and an insult to the team and fans. Period. i have never seen a hof player in Boston for 10 years or more do something like that. Ever.

    Not Bird, Orr, Bourque, Neely, David Ortiz, etc. Ortiz would whine about an additional year in his contract at the end, but he didn’t sabotage the team with a lack of commitment.

    Name the legendary player that did that. You can’t. Brady did it.

    Harry was 2nd to Jerry Jeudy last year in pass attempts that were deeemed uncatchable. Newton was horrendous and if you are a Pats fan, you have to go back to Hugh Millen in 1991 to find something as bad and there was more talent on the 2020 offense than the 1991 offense. And, I’d take Jerry Jeudy on my team in a heartbeat as he needs a qb as well.

    Then again, a lot of the people who post here are Millennials who never even saw what BB has developed in NE compared to pre BB or pre Kraft owning the team.

    Brady had his worst season since 2009 in 2019 and the latter was actually worse than 2009.

    Does Jeudy suck too because he’s had no qb in Denver?

    Simply put, that’s TOTAL BS

  15. They didn’t get Sanu until the end of October. Brady ignored Harry and Myers because they barely knew where to line up, and then usually ran the wrong wrote. If you’re not where you are supposed to be, you’re not getting the ball. Harry didn’t even get separation in college. He was great at contested catches against non NFL talent.You can always do revisionist history with the draft, but this was a bad pick and it’s on Belichick.

    As far as what Brady said about Harry, a former Patriot told the story on sports radio

    The dolphins? What about them? I don’t care about the dolphins. Harry is horrible. Everyone knows it.

  17. He’s OK with it now but when Belicheck reduces his role and he’s not producing, He’ll be saying something different. Demanding that trade made him look so bad and now he’s trying to save face. For his sake he better hope to have a good season or he’s gone after the season.

  18. I love all the excuses TB6 has made for Harry sucking and the Patriots last season. Face it man he is a total bust. And both him and the Pat’s weren’t good enough to overcome any adversity that came there way.

  19. At least he is self aware. He knows that he has not performed well. Maybe a team change makes s difference. Beats what Detroit is doing. It’s the city. Leave.

  20. The Pats tried but couldn’t get anything for him. As such he’s been told to either shut his pie hole and try to be a man and play, or he can be a bench warmer or parking attendent. Which would you rather be?

  21. Patriots are nothing without Brady. Cam is clearly a disaster. Bill is an overrated coach. Back to the cellar, I guess.

    You’re not a very smart person are you?? Belichick is overrated? How many championships did McCarthy win with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers? How many did Shula win with Marino? Don’t tell he’s overrated. Please knowledge yourself on the game of football and the importance of a good coach. Clearly you’re more of a Fantasy” type of fan who knows very little about the game itself.

  23. With Jules gone, do you seriously think N’Keal won’t make the roster? I’m not sure about that. I bet he starts as a #4 receiver, perhaps he even takes some special teams reps.

    I will laugh my self into a coma if he has a normal year and is good.

    You also claimed you would leave this board forever if the Pats failed to win the AFCE…..and yet here you are

  26. Another BB draft bust. Couldn’t win before TB12
    Wont win again without TB12
    Stidham!

  27. The only potential bigger bust than this guy is Isaiah Wynn. But at least Wynn does show some promise when he manages to not be on IR

  28. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE reading the comments of the mentally destroyed that still troll anything & everything Patriots related…. It makes me smile & laugh & enjoy the fact that a Pandemic year with a team with a strapped salary cap issue (before all the opt outs) & a new to one of the most complex offenses in football QB & no camp is what they are basing all their claims off…PRICELESS
    WE GOT BB & a future franchise QB NOW IN THE FOLD on a rookie deal…. LIFE IS AWESOME IN PATRIOTS LAND!!!

  29. kissbillsrings, you sound very much like someone nervously whistling their way through the graveyard.
    Whom are you trying to convince, the rest of us or yourself? It sure seems like the latter.
    Perhaps next time you should capitalize a few more words and phrases, sprinkle in a few more exclamation points, come up with some more excuses, and by all means, please keep using terms like “PATRIOTS LAND!!!”
    Now THAT’S entertainment!

    _______________

    50 ypg and 1 TD last season for Sony. Three years ago Andrew Luck was comeback player of the year. In other words, that was an eternity ago.

    Sony’s also in a contract year since the Pats declined his 5th year option even at the low price of $4 million.

    Do you even know your own team?

  31. Maybe I should have used PATRIOTS WORLD…. That would probably been more accurate…. & YOU know what I say is TRUE & that must be what frightened you the most hence the response you gave….
    Once Bill let’s go of his Cam crush & gives Mad Mac his opportunity, Patriot NATION, WORLD, LAND, whichever you choose to acknowledge, will be set for yet ANOTHER 2 DECADES of Fun & excitement….. I’m whistling thru the present in light of the future!!!
    Cheers & GO PATS!!!!

  32. “I’m whistling thru the present in light of the future!!!”

    If they win 4 games, they’ll be doing great.
