1. Damon Harrison
After being undrafted out of William Penn in 2012, Damon “Snacks” Harrison carved out a great career for himself. Originally a member of the New York Jets, the 350-pound nose tackle was a starter by his second season in the NFL and he had 66 tackles and a sack that year.
He continued to be a fixture in the Jets defensive line until he signed with the New York Giants ahead of the 2016 season. That year, he was given a five-year deal worth just over $46 million — with a whopping $30 million of that due in the first two seasons.
Harrison ended up proving to be well worth the investment as he made the All-Pro Team that year after completely turning the Giants run defense around. He ended up being traded to the Detroit Lions in 2018 and played in 17 games due to the way his two teams bye weeks worked out.
Last season, Harrison signed an $11 million contract to remain in Detroit but so far in 2020, he has not been given a new deal. There have been teams interested but nothing has materialized.
For Cleveland, he would be an excellent fit. A mauler in the run game, Snacks would improve the rushing defense even more than Andrew Billings would. Plus with his age, he would benefit from the team subbing in Larry Ogunjobi on passing downs.
Cleveland could elect to roll with the players they have but the fact is, free agency does still present them with some decent options.
