Giants trade former All-Pro nose guard Damon ‘Snacks’ Harrison to Lions for a pick


One day after dealing Eli Apple to New Orleans, the New York Giants are trading former All-Pro nose guard Damon Harrison to the Detroit Lions, a source confirmed to and USA TODAY Network New Jersey.

The compensation will include a 2019 fifth-round pick.

Harrison, a 2016 All-Pro, is a run stopper and a respected teammate, but the Giants don't play him enough. They also have talented young players such as Dalvin Tomlinson, B.J. Hill and potentially R.J. McIntosh to grow into that spot. Harrison's contract lowered the asking price, considering the Lions will have to pay him $4.1 million for the remainder of this year and $7 million for next year and $9.25 million for 2020 if they want to keep him on the roster.

The Giants (1-6) have lost 21 straight games when trailing entering the fourth quarter, the longest current streak in the NFL. They could have ended that run of misfortune and heartbreak earlier this month had Graham Gano's 63-yard field goal not split the uprights in the waning moments of a 33-31 victory for the Carolina Panthers.
