Reports: Lions to release DT Harrison

The Detroit Lions will release veteran defensive tackle Damon “Snacks” Harrison this week, according to multiple reports.Harrison, 31, signed a one-year contract extension with Detroit worth $11.25 million just six months ago, but he hinted at retirement in December after the Lions finished the season with an abysmal 3-12-1 record.”Wasn’t able to ever get back to the form I’m used to, and I got too much pride, man,” said Harrison per MLive.com. “I’ve been doing this too long. So, if I can’t be the player I’m used to being, my teammates deserve better, my family deserves better, the (Ford) family deserves better. I never cheated the game a day in my life.”Harrison struggled through groin and knee injuries last season and recorded 49 tackles, the lowest total since his rookie season in 2012.
