(WXYZ) — Former Detroit Lions defensive tackle Damon "Snacks" Harrison is speaking out after the team released him.

In a tweet posted Wednesday afternoon, Harrison said the team wasn't a good fit and he had to move on.

"The Detroit lions just wasn’t a good fit for me so I had to move on," he tweeted. "The extension wasn’t what y’all think it was. I’ll speak more on it when I retire..no need to now. My teammates know what happened."

Harrison was let go by the team one year after signing an extension. He'll be a free agent next week.

In December, Snacks was emotional after he said he hadn't made a decision whether or not to retire.
