Damon Harrison tells NFL “the best of me has yet to come”

The Jets have a couple of free agent starters on their defensive line this offseason.

Defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson is expected to receive the franchise tag as the team either buys time to work out a long-term contract or figure out if they’d rather make that kind of commitment to Sheldon Richardson in the not too distant future. Nose tackle Damon Harrison is also headed for free agency and may be harder for the Jets to hold onto should he make it to the open market.

Harrison sent out a tweet this week letting the Jets know what they’d be missing if things play out that way.

“The fact that the best of me has yet to come should excite my supporters…but it should seriously frighten anybody who isn’t for me,” Harrison wrote.

Harrison doesn’t play in many obvious passing situations and players with that profile don’t always break the bank as free agents. Harrison has been particularly effective as an early down banger in the middle of the line, however, and, at 27, offers more upside than others hitting free agency at the position. That could make things frightening for the Jets come March.

    Well, when you’re as good as he is, and can back it up. Why not say what’s on your mind…?

    “The fact that the best of me has yet to come should excite my supporters…”.

    Well bud, you were just in a contract year. When should we expect to see the best of you?

    This guy is a monster in the middle. He’s not that great of a pass rusher, but he is a excellent run stopper.

    @jagsfanugh since when is Poz a nose tackle?

    He’s good but only played 30 percent of the defensive snaps the last 2 years. Keep mo

    So he basically tanked the season to get away from that cess pool known as the NYJ. Can’t blame him but if it’s the nation’s toilet he’s looking for, the Idiot could be spot on with his Buffalo prediction.

    Minnesota offered him a FA contract after the draft. Went to the Jets instead, maybe they’ll come knocking if Jets don’t sign him. Great run stopper! From William Penn College.

    I think the jets should resign him and trade Richardson for a 2nd round pick.. we need to upgrade at rb Ohio state rb good fit at number 20 pick and with 2nd round pick OL or pass rusher..
