Patriots’ Tom Brady works out with N’Keal Harry, Julian Edelman
The New England Patriots lost a lot of key members of their passing game this offseason, as long-time tight end Rob Gronkowski retired and wide receivers Cordarrelle Patterson and Chris Hogan both walked via free agency.
In addition, fellow wideout Josh Gordon is serving an indefinite suspension.
That left Julian Edelman and, well, not much else for Tom Brady to throw to, but for the first time in over two decades, the Patriots decided to use a first-round draft pick on a receiver, selecting Arizona State’s N’Keal Harry at No. 32 overall.
Now, Brady, Edelman and Harry are already all working out together:
We know what Edelman brings to the table, as the wily veteran is a consistent threat in the aerial attack and is coming off of a season in which he earned Super Bowl MVP honors during the Patriots’ championship win over the Los Angeles Rams.
But what about Harry?
While he is yet to play a second of professional football, we know that the 21-year-old is supremely talented and just had a spectacular junior year, hauling in 73 receptions for 1,088 yards and nine touchdowns, representing his second straight 1,000-yard campaign.
New England also signed veteran receivers Demaryius Thomas and Dontrelle Inman, although Thomas is coming off of a torn Achilles and Inman caught just 28 passes with the Indianapolis Colts in 2018.
On their way to winning their sixth Super Bowl, the Pats won 11 games this past year and also captured their 10th consecutive AFC East division title. They have won 15 of the last 16 division crowns.
