Damon Harrison remains a free agent, but it doesn’t sound like he’s in any rush to sign anywhere. Speaking to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the veteran defensive tackle revealed that while he’s heard from several teams, he’s waiting for the perfect fit.
“I’m a free agent waiting on the right opportunity,” Harrison said (Twitter link). “We have some interest on teams and are having some conversations. Nothing real has materialized yet and I’m not in a rush to make a decision.”
After starting at least 15 games per season between 2013 and 2019, Snacks was limited to no starts in only seven games this past year. He waited until October to join the Seahawks practice squad, and he ultimately got into six games with the team, collecting nine tackles and one forced fumble.
After being a healthy scratch in Week 16, he asked for and was granted his release. While the expectation was that the veteran would hit free agency, he was picked up on waivers by the Packers. He saw time in Green Bay’s regular season finale and two playoff games, appearing in 31 defensive snaps.
The nine-year veteran is far removed from a 2016 campaign where he compiled 86 tackles en route to a first-team All-Pro nod, although he did have 3.5 sacks and nine QB hits as recently as 2018. Despite his underwhelming production this past season, it isn’t a surprise that the 32-year-old has been generating interest as a free agent. When he was waived by the Seahawks last season, the Buccaneers, Dolphins and Ravens had expressed interest before he ultimately landed in Green Bay.
