According to ESPN’s Mike Reiss, the Patriots had Willie Harvey Jr. in for a visit on Saturday, though no signing has been announced.
Harvey, 25, entered the league with the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent in 2019. The 5-foot-11, 230-pound Iowa State product began his rookie season on the practice squad before being elevated to the 53-man roster midway through September. Harvey finished the campaign on injured reserve after appearing in a pair of games to record 17 snaps on special teams and his first career tackle.
The Browns later waived Harvey, a three-time All-Big 12 honorable mention who started 42 games with the Cyclones, at the league’s roster deadline in 2020.
NFL clubs must reduce from 90 to 85 active players by 4 p.m. ET Tuesday.
