NFL Media's Kimberly Jones reported Wednesday that nose tackle Damon Harrison will sign a free-agent contract with the New York Giants. Harrison has been one of the league's premiere run-stopping interior linemen for the past four seasons with Gang Green.
NFL Media's Rand Getlin reports that Harrison's deal is worth $9.25 million per year with $24 million guaranteed and $30 million over the first three years.
Harrison fills a huge need for the Giants, who are pumping major funds into an overhaul to their defense. The 6-foot-4, 350-pound Harrison will be paired with Johnathan Hankins on what suddenly looks like a formidable Big Blue interior line.
This is a tough loss for a Jets defense that found a diamond in the rough in Harrison, an undrafted free agent who became a key cog on New York's dominant defensive line. The Jets' front is still loaded with talent, but Harrison's loss will be felt.
That he'll be flattening running backs in a Giants uniform doesn't help matters.
