There will be no more Snacks in the NFL. Defensive tackle Damon Harrison, much better known simply as “Snacks” during his nine NFL seasons, has announced his retirement.

Harrison joined the Lions in a trade from the New York Giants during the 2018 season and stayed with Detroit through 2019. He made an immediate impact on the team’s run defense and also bagged a career-high 3.5 sacks in just 10 games with Detroit following the trade.

The one-time All-Pro started 15 games in Detroit in 2019, netting two sacks among his 49 tackles. After the season, Harrison was let go by Detroit. he played sparingly for Seattle and Green Bay in 2020 and has not been on a roster in 2021.

Harrison made the announcement on his social media feed.

His aggressive style of play and fun-loving personality off the field earned Harrison a lot more fans than most nose tackles ever accumulate. Enjoy the retirement, Snacks! You earned it.
