Patriots signed TE Clay Harbor, formerly of the Jaguars.
Harbor made three starts filling in for Julius Thomas last year, but spent most of the season as Jacksonville's No. 3 tight end. He'll give the Patriots an H-back behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett. Harbor had sports-hernia surgery this offseason, but should be ready for OTAs. Mar 30 - 6:02 PM

Free agent TE Clay Harbor will visit the Patriots on Thursday.

Harbor spent last season as the Jags' third-string tight end behind Julius Thomas and Marcedes Lewis. The Patriots need a backup for Rob Gronkowski after cutting Scott Chandler last week. Free agent running backs James Starks and Benny Cunningham are also in town for visits.
Mar 10 - 3:56 PM

Jaguars TE Clay Harbor underwent sports-hernia surgery on Thursday.

Headed to the open market, Harbor should be healthy for the start of free agency in March. Harbor caught just 14 passes in 2015, his sixth NFL season.
Jan 7 - 4:37 PM

Clay Harbor caught his lone target for 18 yards in the Jaguars' Week 17 loss to the Texans.

Harbor's third season in a Jaguars uniform ends with 14 grabs for 149 yards and a score. With the Jags reportedly wanting to re-sign Marcedes Lewis behind Julius Thomas, there's no guarantee impending free agent Harbor will be back.
Jan 3 - 7:01 PM

Clay Harbor caught 3-of-5 targets for 43 yards and one touchdown in the Jaguars' Week 3 loss to the Patriots.

They were Harbor's first catches of the season. His six-yard score came late in the fourth quarter when the Jaguars were trailing by 41 points. Harbor isn't even remotely on the fantasy radar. Julius Thomas (hand) should be back soon.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said the team will keep using two tight ends despite the hand injury to Julius Thomas.

Even with Thomas out this preseason, the Jaguars have continued to use two tight ends in their base formation. This is good news for Clay Harbor, who should slot into Thomas' spot while he is out the first three weeks of the season. Harbor averaged 3.5 catches a game while Marcedes Lewis was sidelined last season.

Jaguars TE Clay Harbor missed most of OTAs due to a calf injury.

Injuries have often plagued the athletic yet underperforming Harbor. He'll compete to be Julius Thomas' backup at training camp.

Clay Harbor was held without a catch in the Jaguars' Week 17 loss to the Texans.

Harbor was an every-down player from Weeks 4-10 while Marcedes Lewis was on I.R./recall. Once Lewis was back healthy, Harbor returned to the bench and only played about 15 snaps per game down the stretch. He has good hands and is a plus athlete. If the Jaguars decide to cut Lewis, Harbor could return as the No. 1 tight end in 2015, the final year of his contract. Either way, look for the Jaguars to address the tight end position in the offseason.

Jaguars TE Clay Harbor played six snaps in Week 12.

He's been demoted far down the depth chart with Marcedes Lewis back healthy. "I'm the No. 3 now," said Harbor. "I was surprised by it. It was hard. My role is now on special teams." He's safe to drop in 20-team leagues.

Clay Harbor was held without a catch in the Jaguars' Week 9 loss to the Bengals.

Harbor was targeted twice on the afternoon and exited briefly with an elbow injury. It just wasn't in the cards for Harbor, even in a tasty matchup against a Bengals defense minus WLB Vontaze Burfict (knee) and MLB Rey Maualuga (hamstring). Harbor will be worth streaming consideration again in Week 10 against the Cowboys, but he's not an option for the faint of heart.

The Florida Times Union believes it would be in the Jaguars' best interest to use more two-tight end sets when Mercedes Lewis (ankle) returns from short-term I.R.

Clay Harbor has posted a couple solid stat lines as Blake Bortles' security blanket in Lewis' absence. Harbor isn't much of a blocker, while Lewis is a stud in-line tight end. If the Jaguars choose to feature more two-tight looks, it could mean fewer snaps for rookie No. 3 receiver Allen Hurns. Allen Robinson and Cecil Shorts are entrenched as the Nos. 1 and 2 receivers.
Wed, Oct 29, 2014 08:57:00 AM

Clay Harbor caught 2-of-4 targets for 27 yards in Jacksonville's Week 8 loss to the Dolphins.

Harbor never had a chance to get going as Blake Bortles struggled. Harbor is capable of nice games, but is mostly a daily-league dart throw for fantasy purposes. He's a low-end TE2 in re-draft formats.
Sun, Oct 26, 2014 06:48:00 PM

Clay Harbor secured 6-of-6 targets for 34 yards in the Jaguars' Week 7 win over the Browns.

Whereas Harbor caught a downfield dime for a 59-yard touchdown from Blake Bortles last week, he was back to running routes around the line of scrimmage in this one. Harbor has settled in as a shaky week-to-week TE1 streamer. He will be more of a TE2 when Jacksonville takes on the Dolphins in Week 8.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 04:32:00 PM

Clay Harbor (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against the Browns.

He's good to go after being limited in practice throughout the week. Harbor is the No. 16 tight end in Rotoworld's Week 7 rankings.
Sat, Oct 18, 2014 08:42:00 PM

Jaguars TE Clay Harbor secured 3-of-4 targets for 91 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 6 loss to Tennessee.

Sneaky athletic, Harbor delivered a 59-yard reception on Jacksonville's opening drive, whipping Titans FS Michael Griffin to set up Storm Johnson's one-yard touchdown plunge. Harbor's late-game highlight was a fourth-quarter TD pass from 20 yards out thrown by Blake Bortles to get the Jaguars within two points. For as long as Marcedes Lewis remains out, Harbor will be a streamable TE1. The Jaguars play the Browns in Week 7.
