Former Chicago Bears defensive tackle Tommie Harris will be visiting the New England Patriots and working out for the team, Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald.
The latest move could perhaps be the strongest indication that the team is moving towards a new defensive philosophy. After being cut by the Patriots, defensive end Ty Warren said the team was moving away from their traditional 3-4 front. “I think it looks like they’re trying to get away from the 3-4,” Warren said
Bringing in the three-time Pro Bowler Harris could bring New England one step closer to successfully making their transition to the 4-3. Harris would be able to rotate onto the line during passing downs and bring some extra heat from the interior line. We’ll have to keep an eye out later today to see how the visit goes.
