GM Brandon Beane said Monday that the team sees Harold as a defensive end in the Bills' 4-3 set, Chris Brown of the team's official site reports. Harold signed with Buffalo in the offseason after he spent the past four seasons with Detroit and San Francisco, primarily playing at linebacker. The 24-year-old set a career mark in sacks last season with four, so he's capable of handling an edge rush role. Listed at just 243 pounds, some added bulk this offseason could help him if he wants to establish himself at his new position.
Harold signed a one-year contract with the Bills on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Harold set a personal high with four sacks last season despite missing the first three games of his professional career. It's not clear if he'll operate as a defensive end or linebacker in Buffalo, but it's possible he could see time at both spots.
Harold tallied 10 tackles, four sacks and one pass breakup in 13 games for the Lions in 2018. Detroit acquired Harold from San Francisco in the preseason and the 2015 third-rounder ultimately served as Devon Kennard's backup all season. Harold still managed to find his way to a career high in sacks, though he also logged a career low in tackles and will now become an become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year.
Harold (shoulder) has been cleared to play Sunday against the Panthers. Harold logged limited practices Wednesday and Thursday but managed to get in a full practice Friday. The Lions' linebacking corps will be at full strength Sunday, as Jalen Reeves-Maybin (neck) has also been cleared to play. Harold will likely resume his second-string role behind Devon Kennard.
Harold (shoulder) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Bears, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Harold drew a doubtful designation after being limited at practice throughout the week. He has only played nine defensive snaps over the previous three games, so his absence is not expected to impact the Lions' defense.
