The New England Patriots have made a move to bolster their linebacking core.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the team has agreed to terms on a 2-year contract with veteran linebacker David Harris, who was recently released by the New York Jets.

Over his 10 seasons in green, the Michigan product excelled in the middle of the defense, recording 1,088 tackles, 35.5 sacks and missing just six games over that span.

At the least, Harris will add depth to one of the thinner units on the team, as he will now slot into a group that includes Dont'a Hightower, Elandon Roberts, Shea McClellin and Kyle Van Noy.

Also, his veteran presence and leadership abilities should play well in the New England locker room.
