It looks like there will be no Snacks in Seattle come the new year.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that defensive tackle Damon Harrison has asked the Seahawks to release him. Harrison made the request after learning that he will be on the inactive list for Sunday’s game against the Rams.

Per the report, the Seahawks hope that Harrison has a change of heart but that they will grant his request this week if not. Harrison would go on waivers in the event he is dropped from the roster.

Harrison signed with the Seahawks practice squad in October. He has nine tackles and a forced fumble in six games this season.

  1. Vikings could use a run stopping D lineman. They actually offered him a free agent contact track coming out of college but the Jets offer was more money. The rest is history LOL

  2. How many teams will this guy quit on before the rest of the NFL realizes he’s not worth signing.

  3. He has been a professional and asking to be released is understandable. He came to help the team and did that. The players hurt, that he was signed to help backfill, have now returned. He wants to play, demonstrate his talent and sign with a team next season. Again, he isn’t bantering, belittling anyone, or burning bridges. The Seahawks will try to convince him to compete for playing time, rather than “move on.” I hope he takes the approach to “always compete “ rather than leave. However, I believe the Seahawks will release him if that remains his desire.
