From the outside, it appeared as though the Seattle Seahawks needed to make an addition at defensive tackle for months, going back to March when former Seahawk Al Woods signed with the Jaguars. Free agency, the draft, training camp, and the first two weeks of the regular season passed, and Seattle did not make a move, content to carry just three defensive tackles on their roster.
However, the Seahawks may finally be making a move to address the position, with a name many have been clamoring for. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Thursday that former Jets, Giants, and Lions defensive tackle Damon Harrison will visit Seattle after ultimately deciding to play in 2020.
Former NFL All-Pro DT Damon “Snacks” Harrison, who openly contemplated retirement last year, has decided to play this season and is scheduled to visit next week with the Seahawks, per source.

As Schefter noted, Harrison will visit next week, so the Seahawks won’t have any reinforcements ahead of their game against Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys. They did, however, promote Anthony Rush to the 53-man roster on Wednesday.
Schefter added that Seattle is not alone in their interest in Harrison, with the Bears, Packers, and Bengals also showing interest. With Harrison heading to the Seahawks first, they will have every chance to lock him down and not allow him out of the building.
Seattle’s defensive line has remained an area of concern through two weeks but help may be on the way soon, in the form of Snacks.
