ALLEN PARK, Mich. (WXYZ) — Detroit Lions Training Camp kicks off later this week, and one of two holdouts will report to camp, according to the NFL Network.
Damon "Snacks" Harrison told NFL Network that he will be reporting to Training Camp when it starts, despite missing the mandatory minicamp in June to get a new contract.
Just said on @nflnetwork: #Lions star DT Damon “Snacks” Harrison tells me “I’ll be there!” when veterans report to camp Wednesday. He and CB Darius Slay sat out minicamp for contract reasons. Doesn’t sound like any new deal yet, but Snacks – a bigtime team leader – plans to show.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) July 22, 2019
Harrison has two years left on the $46 million contract he signed with the New York Giants before he was traded to the Lions last season.
In 10 games with Detroit, he had 50 tackles, 37 of which were solo tackles, and 3.5 sacks.
Cornerback Darius Slay was the other player who sat out minicamp. He is in the third year of a $50 million deal that expires at the end of the season. It's not clear if he will report to Training Camp, but did tweet out that he was "beyond blessed," on Sunday night.
