New England Patriots Could Attempt To Acquire Philadelphia Eagles Clay Harbor


Needing to replace Aaron Hernandez, the New England Patriots are searching for a promising (though cheap) tight end which according to Paul Domowitch, could be Clay Harbor of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Domowitch says he expects Harbor to catch at least fifty passes this year, for the New England Patriots:

Prediction: Eagles TE @clayharbs82 will catch 50-plus passes this season. For the New England Patriots.

Harbor is a talented, though, underachieving tight end who is going to struggle for playing time on the Eagles. Currently listed behind Brent Celek, James Casey and rookie Zach Ertz on the depth chart, speculation has suggested the Eagles may be willing to part with Harbor for a sixth or seventh round pick, a price you’d have to assume New England would be willing to pay.

A three year NFL veteran, Harbor played in 14 games this past season for the Eagles though only caught 25 passes on 39 targets, two of which went for touchdowns.

The former Missouri State star was a fourth round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.
