Chicago Bears wide receiver N’Keal Harry is getting a fresh start in 2022. After a disappointing three-year run with the New England Patriots, Harry’s opportunity this season to prove he was worthy of being a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft is massive.
“I got a real chip on my shoulder,” Harry said from Halas Hall Wednesday. “I’m looking to come in and do anything I can to help this team win. I feel like I fit very well within the offense, so, you know, I’m ready to go, man.”
Harry’s doing all the right things early in his Bears career and is already making a positive impression on offensive coordinator Luke Getsy.
“He came in here with a purpose. … I’m very impressed with how he’s approached this thing,” Getsy said Thursday.
N’Keal Harry starred at Arizona State as a big-bodied my-ball specialist. He’s been plagued by injuries and separation issues so far in his career, but a clean slate with the Chicago Bears could be all he needs to unlock his alpha skill set.
“Just dominance,” Harry said of his goal for 2022.” I just want to show how dominant I could be just as a player in the NFL.”
He, along with the rest of the Bears’ unproven receivers, will get their chance to establish themselves as starters in training camp.
“This is a golden opportunity for all of us. It’s just who’s going to grab it,” Harry said.
