Lost in the hype surrounding the Martellus Bennett acquisition and the Summer of Gronk III was the fact that the Patriots added a No. 3 tight end that could start for quite a few teams.

Clay Harbor, formerly of the Eagles and Jaguars, inked a two-year deal with the Pats in the spring, receiving a reported $400,000 signing bonus. That's a hefty guarantee for a player that is not considered a lock to make the final roster.

Or perhaps the Pats truly do have a spot set aside for Harbor. After all, he gives them something different.

While Gronkowski and Bennett have, as Bill Belichick said, "interchangeable" skill sets, the 6-foot-2 Harbor is in the "move" tight end mold: athletic and agile with the ball in his hands, able to serve as a fullback, and able to line up wide.

Fantasy Impact: 

Harbor participated in spring practices, but began the summer on the PUP list. He came off PUP Sunday — along with Julian Edelman — and caught passes from Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo Monday.
