Former Seahawk Damon ‘Snacks’ Harrison claimed by Packers off waivers


On Monday, the Seattle Seahawks released DT Damon ‘Snacks’ Harrison per his request.

Just two days later, Harrison already found himself a new home. And it's in the NFC.

According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport on Wednesday, the veteran defensive tackle has been officially claimed by the Green Bay Packers according to the league’s transaction wire.

During his tenure in Seattle, Harrison played in six games and recorded nine tackles, as well as forcing a fumble.

Harrison may not be at the level he once was, but his veteran status does still carry some value.

On Monday, Carroll had indicated that Harrison had “decided to stop playing.” However, Harrison did tweet from his own Twitter account that he was still interested in playing.

With Seahawks’ Bryan Mone officially making his return back to the squad, Harrison made a business decision and knew that the younger player was going to get the majority of the snaps. 

Harrison was listed as inactive for Sunday’s game against the Rams. Basically, it was the straw that broke the camel's back.

With being picked up by the Packers, Harrison now has a chance to make an impact with another NFC contender as the playoffs get going here in the next few weeks.
