On Wednesday morning, news broke that the Detroit Lions had traded a fifth-round draft pick to the New York Giants for All-Pro defensive lineman Damon ‘Snacks’ Harrison.

Today, that trade was made official by the Lions and Harrison was already in town for his first practice.

When hearing about the news that Harrison would be joining him on the Lions, Golden Tate sent a welcome tweet asking if there were any snacks he could have waiting for the newest Lion.

Well, according to reports, Harrison’s locker had a box of chips and candies sitting in his locker when he arrived

That welcome gift was from none other than Golden Tate, who was a man of his word.


Grading the Detroit Lions’ trade for DL Damon ‘Snacks’ Harrison

There is nothing better than waking up to a blockbuster trade that involves your favorite team.

That’s exactly what happened on Wednesday morning when I woke up to a tweet from Ian Rappoport reporting that the Detroit Lions the New York Giants for DL Damon Harrison.

So, how should Lions GM Bob Quinn be graded on this trade?

Let me begin by saying that I have never been more confident in handing out a grade than I am now. (Well, giving the Teez Tabor draft pick an F was pretty solid too)

By acquiring Harrison, Quinn was able to solidify the Lions’ biggest weakness, stopping the run. Harrison, who many refer to as “Snacks,” has led the NFL in run stops in each of the past three seasons and through Week 7 of this season, he is No. 2 in the league in that category.
