Reports: Giants, Damon Harrison agree to five-year deal
The New York Giants have agreed to a deal with former Jets defensive tackle Damon Harrison, according to multiple reports.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports the deal includes $24 million guaranteed and will pay Harrison $9 million annually over five years.
At 6'4", 350 pounds, Harrison holds a reputation as an elite run-stopper and leaves the Jets with a hole on their defensive line. The Giants have also reportedly agreed to terms with cornerback Janoris Jenkins and re-signed defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul to bolster a revamped defense.
The Giants finished 6–10 last season, third in the NFC East.
