“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.
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.
