Lions DT Damon Harrison Reporting For Start Of Training Camp


Tom Pelissero of NFL Meia reports that Lions DT Damon Harrison will be in attendance for the start of training camp on Wednesday. 

“I’ll be there!” Harrison told Pelissero. 

Harrison previously skipped the Lions’ minicamp and has been looking for a new contract. However, Pelissero says that it doesn’t sound like there’s a new deal in place at this time.

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press recently reported that the Lions met with the agent for Harrison and CB Darius Slay to discuss new contracts for both players.

Harrison, 30, 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 that included $24 million guaranteed with the Giants.

The Giants later traded Harrison to the Lions in return for a 2018 fifth-round pick. Harrison stands to make base salaries of $6.75 million and $9 million over the next two years.

In 2018, Harrison appeared in 10 games for the Lions, recording 50 total tackles, 3.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.  In seven games for the Giants, he recorded 31 tackles, no sacks and a forced fumble.
