Shortly after Damon Harrison officially joined the Seattle Seahawks’ practice squad, he received an offer to sign with the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay, who had just lost Vita Vea for the season, attempted to add Harrison to their 53-man roster as a replacement. Instead, Snacks turned the team down and remained on Seattle’s practice squad.
While Harrison was not active for his first available game with the Seahawks, in Week 5, it appears the veteran defensive tackle remains happy with his decision. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported on Tuesday that the Dolphins recently made an attempt to sign Harrison to their active roster but, like the Bucs, were turned down.
The #Dolphins recently tried to sign DT Damon "Snacks" Harrison off the #Seahawks practice squad, per source -- but he declined, just as he did with the #Bucs. Still ramping up towards joining Seattle's active roster.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) October 20, 2020
Though Harrison didn’t get to suit up in Seattle’s win over the Vikings, it is just a matter of time with the run-stopper first getting into game shape. Speaking to reporters on Monday, Pete Carroll seemed to indicate Harrison was close, describing Snacks as “svelte” before saying this would be the first week the team really has an opportunity to get a good look at him.
Despite the best efforts of both Tampa Bay and Miami, the svelte Snacks Harrison will soon be making his 2020 debut—as a member of the Seahawks.
