The New York Daily News expects it to be "tough" for the Jets to re-sign free agent NT Damon Harrison.
The Jets have to find a way to retain LE Muhammad Wilkerson, while RE Sheldon Richardson is entering a contract year. Although Jets coach Todd Bowles has been open about his hopes of retaining Harrison, the two-down run stuffer could get overpaid if he hits the free agent market. Feb 10 - 10:09 PM

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini reports impending free agent NT Damon Harrison is likely looking for "at least" $5 million annually on a new contract.

The Jets reportedly value re-signing Harrison as highly as keeping RE Muhammad Wilkerson, who is also scheduled for free agency. Harrison "believes he's the best 3-4 nose tackle in the league" and wants to be paid like it. Vince Wilfork and Terrance Knighton made $4.45 million annually in 2015 as the league's highest-paid pure 3-4 nose tackles. "Big Snacks" should best that.

The Jets want to re-sign impending free agent NT Damon Harrison.

"Snacks" quietly had a monster season, playing 577 snaps and grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 6 overall defensive tackle as he started all 16 games. It's obvious why the Jets want to keep him, but with the Jets set to give Muhammad Wilkerson franchise tag money for what's soon to be an extremely pricey defensive line, Harrison could slip through the cracks.

Jets re-signed restricted free agent NT Damon Harrison to a one-year, $2.356 million contract.

"Big Snacks" wasn't going anywhere with the Jets using the second-round tender on him. He'll return to anchor new coach Todd Bowles' defensive line. Harrison, 26, was PFF's No. 3 defensive tackle against the run last season.

Jets extended restricted free agent NT Damon Harrison a second-round tender.

S Jaiquawn Jarrett has been tendered at the original-round (second) level. Harrison's tender comes with a $2.356 million price tag. ESPN New York had considered Harrison a candidate for a first-round tender, but Gang Green is apparently confident no one will be willing to surrender a day-one pick for the run stopper. Harrison is an integral part of the Jets' ground defense.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes New York will use a first-round tender on restricted free agent NT Damon Harrison.

The first-round tender will be worth at least $3.1 million. Harrison started every game for the Jets last season, grading out as a top-15 interior defensive lineman according to Pro Football Focus. One of the best run stuffers in the game, the Jets should seriously consider locking up Harrison with a longer-term deal.

ESPN New York thinks Kenrick Ellis may have been "Wally Pipp-ed" by Damon Harrison for the Jets' starting nose tackle job.

Ellis has only appeared in one preseason game due to a back injury, while second-year Harrison has flourished. Harrison made six "stops" in last week's dress rehearsal. He's a mammoth of a man at 6-foot-4, 350. Ellis is no slouch at 6-foot-5, 330. The Jets are going to have a strong front line with either Ellis or Harrison being book-ended by Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson.
