According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Patriots are working to re-sign free agent DB Duron Harmon.

Per Rapsheet, a new deal is "expected to happen." Harmon was New England's primary nickel back last season, recording 29 tackles and one interception over 508 defensive snaps. Assuming he's back in Foxboro, Harmon will bring some continuity to a Patriots secondary that could look a lot different in 2017.

Patriots S Duron Harmon (undisclosed) expects to be ready for training camp.

Harmon sat out the entire offseason program in an effort to "clean up some things physically," but he said he will be "ready to go" for camp. Harmon is third on the depth chart at safety, but he plays plenty of snaps in sub packages. He is set to earn $675,000 in the final year of his rookie deal.

Patriots S Duron Harmon exited Week 9 against the Redskins with a left leg injury.

Harmons left leg collapsed after taking a hit from Chris Thompson deep into garbage time. The good news is he was able to walk off on his own. Harmon has been a revelation at free safety so far this season.

The Boston Herald has already anointed 2013 third-round pick Duron Harmon the Patriots' starting strong safety.

Last year's 91st overall pick, Harmon has outplayed Pat Chung and Tavon Wilson, who weren't likely to be strong competitors in the first place. Harmon held his own on 430 snaps as a rookie, and will line up opposite Devin McCourty in New England's rebuilt secondary, with Darrelle Revis at corner.

Duron Harmon has been running as the starting strong safety at Patriots OTAs.

After the Patriots released Steve Gregory, the starting job next to FS Devin McCourty had Harmon's name on it. Tavon Wilson, Patrick Chung, and Logan Ryan are the competition. Harmon started three games as a rookie last season and didn't embarrass himself. He showed a nose for the ball with two picks.

Following the release of Steve Gregory, Duron Harmon is penciled in as the favorite to be the Patriots' starting strong safety.

Harmon was the 91st pick in last April's draft despite being viewed beforehand as no more than a late-round prospect. He ended up playing 433 defensive snaps as a rookie, contributing 31 tackles and two interceptions while receiving positive marks in coverage from PFF. Harmon will face competition for the job but has some sleeper IDP attractiveness, especially in Dynasty leagues.

Patriots agreed to terms with No. 91 overall pick S Duron Harmon on a four-year contract.

Considered one of the biggest reaches of the draft, Harmon was typically projected as a day-three pick. According to NFL Draft Insider Tony Pauline, the Patriots' scouts were "overruled" by Bill Belichick on the Rutgers product. Competing for snaps behind Adrian Wilson, Devin McCourty, Steve Gregory and Tavon Wilson, Harmon will likely be limited to special teams as a rookie, though anything is possible in New England.

According to NFL Draft insider Tony Pauline, the Patriots' scouts were "overruled" and the brain trust "made the choice" when New England selected S Duron Harmon with the No. 91 overall pick.

In other words, Bill Belichick loved Harmon while his scouts didn't. Pauline wrote that "no one I spoke with" thought Harmon would be a top-100 pick before the draft. New England selected him at No. 91 overall. Pauline also reports there was "a lot of disagreement" over the Patriots' second-round selection of OLB Jamie Collins. "Many" Pats scouts graded Collins as a "last-day pick."

Patriots selected Rutgers S Duron Harmon with the No. 91 overall pick.

Harmon (6-foot, 196) was viewed as a late-round prospect. Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl stated during Rutgers' bowl game that Harmon was "destroying people out there," as well as commenting on his "good size." He'll compete for snaps behind Adrian Wilson, Devin McCourty, Steve Gregory, and Tavon Wilson.
