The Seattle Seahawks recently signed Damon “Snacks” Harrison to the practice squad with the hopes he can eventually be promoted to the active roster.

After receiving offers from the Buccaneers and Dolphins recently, Harrison chose to remain on the Seahawks’ practice squad.

The Buccaneers were reeling from Vita Vea’s season-ending injury in Week 5 and extended an offer to Harrison, which he declined.

One week later, NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero reported that the Dolphins attempted to lure the nose tackle away from the Emerald City to no avail.

As Pelissero noted, Harrison may be trying to work his way up into the rotation.

Pete Carroll previously spoke favorably of Harrison’s abilities and character, as well as the opportunity to obtain him and put him on the practice squad.

Harrison has built up a reputation as a solid run-stopper, leading the NFL in run-stop percentage in 2013 and 2016.

The Seahawks will hope he can step in if they need him to, as they may need all the defensive line help they can get.
