Free Agent DT Damon Harrison Says He’s Turned Down A Few Offers, In No Rush To Sign


Free agent DT Damon Harrison said in an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio on Thursday that he’s turned down some offers from teams and is no rush to make a decision.

“I’ve turned down a few offers,” Harrison said, via Pro Football Talk. “I’m not in a rush to make a decision because I control where I go and want to be as informed as possible.”

Harrison added that he’s looking to join “a winning program” for the upcoming season. 

There hasn’t been a lot of reported interest in Harrison since he became available several months ago. 

The Cowboys were mentioned as a possible landing spot, but they signed Gerald McCoy soon after. 

Harrison, 31, originally signed on with the Jets as an undrafted free agent out of William Penn back in 2012. He spent four years with the Jets before departing in free agency for a five-year, $46.25 million contract with the Giants.

The Giants later traded Harrison to the Lions. He was entering the fourth year of his five-year, $46.25 million deal when he agreed to a one-year, $11 million extension last year. 

Detroit released him in February. 

In 2019, Harrison appeared in 15 games for the Lions and recorded 48 tackles, two sacks and three pass defenses.
