Seahawks Add DE Damon Harrison to Practice Squad, Will He Impact the Roster?

Right now the Seahawks defense is last in the NFL in total yards allowed per game (476.8).

The team has especially struggled against the pass, allowing 401 yards per game, which also ranks 32nd, and their six total sacks through four games this season shows that this unit can very much use some work.

Wednesday the team added a piece to the team they hope will eventually help their defensive line, as the club added veteran defensive lineman Damon “Snacks” Harrison, who they met with last week.

The team inked the nine-year veteran and former first-team All-Pro to the practice squad, but there’s no doubt he’ll be on the active roster sooner than later.

The Seahawks also made an addition to their 53-man roster, signing defensive end Jonathan Bullard. Cornerback Neiko Thorpe, who has missed the past two games with a hip injury, was placed on injured reserve.

The 31-year-old is best known as a run-stuffing interior lineman, but has also contributed 11 sacks in his career, 9.5 of which have come since 2016.

“He’s been a real force in the league,” Hawks coach Pete Carroll said.

“He’s got a real special style, and he’s so big and so strong and stout in the middle. This opportunity to get him now and to get him on the practice squad is to give him some chance to work and get ready and learn what we’re doing and see where he can fit in as soon as possible.”
