2. N’Keal Harry
This one doesn’t need much of an explanation.
Trading Harry would save just over $1 million in cap space, but it’d be better than letting him leave for free as a free agent, right? At this point, the 2019 first-rounder wouldn’t go for anything more than a late-round draft pick.
As long as Belichick swallows his pride and admits Harry was a colossal swing and miss, he should absolutely float him in trade talks.
At 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds with plenty of raw talent, we believe Harry, who just turned 24, can turn his career around. It’s just not going to happen with the Patriots. He proved this past season that he’s a force blocking for the running game, so that could make him a more appealing trade chip.
Harry needing a change of scenery is two years old at this point. His dominant training camp leading up to 2021 indicated he could carve out a role on the offense, and, in turn, boost his trade value, but it was just the same old story.
This relationship should’ve ended yesterday.
