Veteran defensive tackle Damon ‘Snacks’ Harrison has reportedly scheduled visits with the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers this week.
While it looked like Damon Harrison was all set to retire and enjoy life after his football days, the massive defensive tackle isn’t quite done making plays in the trenches just yet. Harrison, best known as Snacks, made it clear late last month that he wanted to play again.
Will Damon Harrison finalize a deal with the Seahawks or Packers later this week?
Per ESPN insider Josina Anderson, the 6-foot-3, 350-pound Harrison will take a visit to Seattle on Tuesday to meet with Pete Carroll and the Seahawks, and then quickly jump on a plane and head to Green Bay to meet with the Packers on Wednesday.
Interestingly enough, both teams are a perfect 4-0 to start the campaign, with Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers are the MVP frontrunners because of their spectacular play. For Harrison, should he sign with either team, he’ll be in a position to join an NFC powerhouse that has expectations to compete for the Super Bowl this season.
Meanwhile for both Seattle and Green Bay, a guy of Harrison’s size doesn’t grow on trees. In 15 games last season with the Detroit Lions, the tackle posted 49 tackles and added two sacks.
For his career, he has 485 tackles and 11 sacks. Will the Seahawks or Packers be able to turn his head during their visits and get him to sign on the dotted line for the rest of the campaign? We could find out soon enough what the future has in store for Harrison.
