Lions DT Damon “Snacks” Harrison Says He’ll Contemplate Retirement

Lions DT Damon Harrison was in tears following Sunday’s loss to the Packers and discussed the possibility of retiring this offseason.

Harrison told reporters that his mind still thinks he can play, but his body is saying otherwise. 

“I got to talk it over with my family, try to seek some different options, Harrison said. But if I do walk away, I’m not ashamed, I don’t feel bad. Because I gave it everything I had, even when it wasn’t good enough. I’ve given everything I have to every team I’ve played for. I don’t feel bad if (retirement is) the decision. I got a lot of thinking to do this offseason, I’m going to seek some different options. … But if I can’t be that guy I want to be, then I got to hang it up.”

Harrison had 50 tackles and a career-high 3.5 sacks in 10 games for the Lions after arriving in a trade last October.

In 2019, he appeared in 15 games and recorded 48 tackles and two sacks.
