The New England Patriots are coming off a blowout loss at the hands of the Bears and now teams are reaching out to them on several of their players, per Pro Football Focus’ Doug Kyed.
There was already interest in Kendrick Bourne and Nelson Agholor, but now the team has been getting calls on RB Damien Harris and S Jabrill Peppers.
Harris and Peppers are both in contract years. The team is deep at running back with the emergence of second-year running back Rhamondre Stevenson and the drafting of Pierre Strong Jr. and Kevin Harris.
The Patriots are looking to rack up some draft picks with these players should they trade them away.
In 2022, Harris has rushed for 265 yards and three touchdowns. He’s added nine receptions on 12 targets for 32 yards.
The 27-year-old Peppers has appeared in seven games for the Patriots and recorded 20 total tackles, no sacks or interceptions, and one fumble recovery. He missed all but six games in 2021 due to an ACL tear and signed a one-year deal with the Patriots in the offseason.
