Harris happy to be with Pats, but feels ‘disrespected' by Jets' late release


David Harris is certainly happy to be a Patriot. But that doesn't mean he's forgotten -- or forgiven -- the way his Jets career ended.

Pro Football Talk reports Harris, in an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio, felt "disrespected" being released so late after the new league year had begin,

"They kind of blindsided me with the whole thing, being so late in the offseason, a week before minicamp," he said. "It came out of left field. It was more about the disrespect of the whole situation than anything else. But the Jets made their decision. I had to sit back and be patient and evaluate some things.

"A couple teams were inquiring about me, but then once the Patriots came into the picture, it was pretty much a done deal as soon as I found out they were interested in me."

And being in Foxboro has been everything Harris thought it would be.

"It feels good. I couldn't expect anything more," he said. "Everybody just works hard every day, with that winning attitude, and the culture is like no other than I've been a part of. I'm glad to be here, this late in my career and be around a bunch of great individuals. They are better people off the field."
