Former Jets LB David Harris has agreed to a two-year deal with the New England Patriots worth $6.75 million, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
The Patriots offered Harris more than the Jets offered him earlier this month prior to his release, reports Mike Florio of NBC Sports.
Harris visited with the Patriots on Wednesday after speaking with head coach Bill Belichick (and coaches from five other teams) earlier this week, notes Florio.
The 33-year-old Harris, who was released on June 6 after failing to agree to a pay cut, was with the Jets from 2007 to 2016.
Head coach Todd Bowles aligned with management after Harris was cut, but was clearly not in favor of the move.
