Report: Patriots Signing Clay Harbor, Adding Versatile Tight End Depth


The New England Patriots reportedly added a versatile weapon to their offense Wednesday.

The Patriots agreed to terms on a contract with tight end Clay Harbor, a source told ESPN’s Adam Caplan.

Harbor was selected in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Missouri State. He has spent the last three seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The 6-foot-3, 250-pound pass-catcher has 111 career receptions for 1,151 yards with eight touchdowns in six NFL seasons. He had 14 catches for 149 yards with one score in 2015 with the Jaguars. His best season came in 2013, when he had 24 catches for a career-high 292 yards and two touchdowns.

Harbor also has spent time in the NFL at fullback and H-back.

Harbor will join Rob Gronkowski, Martellus Bennett, Michael Williams, A.J. Derby and James Develin on the Patriots’ depth chart at tight end/fullback. He could serve as depth behind Gronkowski, Bennett and Develin at both tight end and fullback.
