The Detroit Lions acquired Damon ‘Snacks’ Harrison from the New York Giants last season, playing in just ten games in 2018, but already looking to get paid.
The defensive tackle has been absent from the Lions OTAs as he is seeking a new deal, which has ticked off some fans.
The fan backlash has gotten so bad that Snacks had to take to Twitter and rip any fans, including Giants fans, who have something to say about his contract situation.
“Y’all wake up every day and talk about this contract s—,” Harrison wrote. “Giants fans tweet me every day about how much of a bum I am and how they glad I’m gone lol … I’m not bothering either one of y’all … bout to start blocking folks so I can enjoy tweeting supporters again.”
The 30-year-old has just $8 million in total guaranteed money remaining over the final two years of his contract, despite being seen as one of the best rushers in the entire league. Snacks believes he has played at a high enough level to warrant a new deal right now.
Despite the lack of leverage he has at the moment, it might do the Lions some good to make him happy as he gets set to play a full season with the team.
