Jets Re-Sign RFA DT Damon Harrison

Jets restricted free agent DT Damon Harrison told reporters on Wednesday that he has signed his one-year tender, per Rich Cimini.

Harrison was among five restricted free agents that hasn’t signed their tenders. He receives one-year contract worth $2.356 million and will be an unrestricted free agent in 2016.

Harrison, 26, signed on with the Jets as an undrafted free agent out of William Penn back in 2012. He has quickly become a solid interior defensive lineman for the Jets, who would have found a great deal of interest had the Jets not used a second-round tender on him.

Last year, Harrison recorded 55 tackles over the course of 16 games for the Jets, but those stats don’t do him justice based on the how good of a run-stopper he has been. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 14 defensive tackle out of 81 qualifying players.
