N'Keal Harry addresses missed opportunity on first catch vs. Dolphins


N'Keal Harry's first reception against the Dolphins Sunday at the very end of the first quarter went for just six yards, but it had the opportunity to go for much more.

Things were set up for him to get a running start with the ball and if he avoided one tackle it could have turned into a big gain. Unfortunately for Harry, he was brought down easily by Jamal Perry, a 5-foot-10 cornerback who weighs under 200 pounds.

It wasn't the best look for Harry, who is listed by the team at 6-foot-4, 225 pounds.

Speaking via video conference Friday, Harry explained the play from his view.

"Yeah I just didn't expect the hit," he said. "Didn't lower my shoulders in time. So moving forward just make sure I keep my pads lower."

Harry seems more comfortable with Cam Newton as his quarterback than he did with Tom Brady last season.

"Yeah, I felt really comfortable out there," he said. "It's good to have a mobile quarterback out there. There's always a chance of extending plays and stuff like that so just making sure we stay alive on routes and that we're always ready for stuff like that."
