Harrison was placed on the PUP list for the start of training camp due to swelling in his knee, Ralph Vacchiano of NY Daily News reports. The injury isn't considered to be serious and the defensive tackle shouldn't be out for an extended period of time. Fellow defensive tackle Jay Bromley (ankle) is also on the PUP list, meaning first-team reps will go to Montori Hughes and Greg Milhouse to open up training camp.
Harrison agreed to a five-year, $46.5 million deal with the Giants on Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of NJ Advance Media reports. With the Jets in a salary cap bind, Harrison took the Giants' substantial contract offer Wednesday and will be a member of their defensive front for years to come. Harrison was the anchor of a loaded Jets defensive front that included Muhammad Wilkerson and rookie phenom Leonard Williams in 2015 and should make an immediate impact up the middle for a Giants defense that was underwhelming at every level last season.
Nose tackle Damon Harrison said Wednesday that he had signed his offer sheet with the Jets, meaning the restricted free agent is signed through the 2015 season on a one-year, $2.35 million contract, per NJ.com. The move was not a surprise, considering Harrison has been working out with the team during voluntary camps. He tallied 30 solo tackles last season for New York.
The Jets announced that they have tendered nose tackle Damon Harrison and safety Jaiquawn Jarrett. Both players were restricted free agents. Harrison is the team's starting nose tackle, while Jarrett is a backup safety. If a team wants to sign Harrison, and the Jets don't match the offer, the Jets would receive a second-round pick in this year's draft due to his tender. For Jarrett to be signed by an opposing team, they would have to give up a third-round draft choice. Both contracts are worth $2.356 million.
Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin (rib) and center Nick Mangold (ankle) are the most notable players listed as questionable for Sunday's season finale at Miami. Defensive lineman Damon Harrison (illness), safety Jaiquawn Jarrett (shoulder), safety Dawan Landry (illness), cornerback Darrin Walls (shoulder) and defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson (toe, illness) joined Mangold and Harvin as questionable for Sunday. Meanwhile, the following players were deemed probable: Safety Antonio Allen (hand), guard Willie Colon (knee), kicker Nick Folk (right hip), running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) and running back Chris Johnson (knee). Safety Rontez Miles (shin) was the only player on New York's final injury report of the season ruled out for Sunday.
