Lions' Damon Harrison: Absence not contract-related
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Bob Quinn said Harrison's absence from voluntary workouts is not contract-related, Nate Atkins of MLive.com reports.

Harrison is entering the fourth year of the five-year deal he signed with the Giants in 2016. The William Penn product switched agents and has expressed his desire to work out a new long-term deal with Detroit, which led to speculation that his absence is related to contract negotiations. It also doesn't appear that Harrison's absence is injury-related.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Skipping voluntary workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison isn't present for the start of the Lions' voluntary workout program, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Harrison outplayed his five-year, $46.2 million contract with the Giants and continued to do so after he was traded to Detroit in October. He's now hoping for a new deal to replace the final two seasons of the aforementioned contract, as he doesn't have any guaranteed money remaining and is scheduled for base salaries of $6.75 million (2019) and $9 million (2020), per overthecap.com. A report in late March suggested the Lions have been receptive to negotiations with the 30-year-old defensive tackle.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Seeking new contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison is negotiating with the Lions on a new contract, Kyle Meinke of mlive.com reports.

Harrison exceeded expectations in 2018 after joining the Lions via a midseason trade with the Giants, finishing the year with 81 tackles, 3.5 sacks and one forced fumble. After acquiring the 30-year-old defensive lineman, Detroit's run defense surrendered only 3.8 yards per carry (second best in the NFL) as opposed to an egregious 5.3 YPC without Harrison. Harrison has two more years remaining on his current deal and a $6.75 million base salary for 2019, and evidently believes that the high level of his production warrants a new long-term deal.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Quiet ending to prolific season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison recorded two tackles during Sunday's season finale in Green Bay.

Becoming just the eighth player since 1931 to play in 17 games during an NFL season -- thanks to the timing of his midseason trade from New York to Detroit -- Harrison finishes the season with 81 tackles, 3.5 sacks and one forced fumble, which is quite the stat line for a 341-pound interior lineman in his age-30 season. Perhaps no testament to his talent is greater than how significant the turnaround of the Lions' run defense was before and after Harrison came to town; Detroit surrendered 5.3 yards per carry without Harrison versus 3.8 YPC with him. His absence from the Pro Bowl roster is consequently among the most egregious of the year outside of Colts rookie sensation Darius Leonard. Under contract for another two seasons, look for Harrison to return with a vengeance in 2019.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Harrison played through the ankle issue in Week 16 as well, logging 39 defensive snaps en route to five tackles (three solo). He'll look to shut down Jamaal Williams and the Packers' rushing attack during the Lions' season finale.
