Linebacker David Harris has been assigned No. 51 with the Patriots. His role/skill set is similar to former Patriots LB Jerod Mayo, who also wore No. 51 during his playing days. Harris was No. 52 with the Jets. A related jersey note: Undrafted rookie LB Brooks Ellis had been No. 51, but has been switched to No. 47 to accommodate Harris.
