Eagles sort out Patriots’ previous first-round pick

As the Philadelphia Eagles opened camp on Tuesday, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero revealed that the group has worked out previous Bears wide recipient N’Keal Harry.

You’d be excused in the event that you didn’t know Harry spent last season in Chicago. A lower leg injury restricted him to only seven yards for 119 yards in seven games with the Bears. Harry is otherwise called a Patriot, yet his numbers weren’t perfect with them by the same token.

New England took Harry with their first-round pick, 32nd generally in the 2019 NFL Draft. In three years with the group, he had 57 catches for 598 yards and four scores.

He was exchanged to Chicago for a seventh-round pick in 2022 however neglected to have an effect in a Bears group that saw tight end Cole Kmet lead all collectors with 544 yards.

Do the Eagles have serious interest in the 25-year-old receiver, or would they say they are basically searching for exchanging camp bodies? Philadelphia as of late marked veteran wide receiver and MVP of the USFL Title Game, Deon Cain to an agreement and furthermore worked out JaVonta Payton who played for two XFL groups a year ago.

NFL programs can hold up to 90 players in training camp, so there’s no gamble in getting players like Cain, Payton and Harry. Payton nearly made the group last offseason and invested energy in Philadelphia’s training crew in 2022.

Eventually, Harry would be a longshot to make the group’s 53-man program yet could see huge playing time in preseason games. Philadelphia knows precisely exact thing they have in A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith. Both completed as top-ten beneficiaries in 2022 with 18 scores joined. Neither ought to see a lot, if any activity this preseason.

The No. 3 collector position could be available to all yet is logical Quez Watkins’ to lose as he fights previous Hawk Olamide Zaccheaus. In any case, Philadelphia decided not to re-sign Zach Pascal this year, so maybe Harry would fit as the group’s No. 4 receiver.
