According to reports the Detroit Lions have released DT Damon Harrison. The Detroit Lions will save $6.75- million towards the salary cap this season after releasing Harrison.
Harrison was brought into Detroit after a trade with the New York Giants midway through the 2018 season. His impact during the second half of the 2018 season didn’t go unnoticed, but his 2019 campaign wasn’t enough for Detroit to keep the 31 year old.
At the end of this 2019 season Harrison made it clear that he was contemplating retirement. We will have to wait and see if Harrison decides to retire or test out the free agent market.
Detroit is also set to lose free agent defensive tackles Mike Daniels and A’Shawn Robinson. This is a huge offseason for the entire Detroit franchise as they’ve announced that if they don’t make the playoffs they’ll be firing head coach Matt Patricia and GM Bob Quinn.
The next move that is expected to happen for the Detroit Lions is the trade of Pro Bowler, Darius Slay. A move that’ll shake up the entire league. One that I truly hope doesn’t happen. Maybe with Detroit saving this money they’ll resign Slay to a longer deal.
