The Green Bay Packers have claimed DL Damon Harrison off of waivers from the Seattle Seahawks and released DL Anthony Rush. General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transactions Thursday.
Harrison, a 6-foot-3, 339-pound ninth-year player out William Penn, was originally signed by the New York Jets as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2012. After four seasons (2012-15) with the Jets, he went on to play for the New York Giants (2016-18), Detroit Lions (2018-19) and the Seahawks (2020). Harrison was named first-team All-Pro in 2016 by The Associated Press when he led all NFL defensive tackles with a career-best 86 tackles (55 solo). He has played in 123 regular-season games with 111 starts, recording 494 tackles (295 solo), 37 tackles for a loss, 11 sacks, 24 QB hits, five forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. He has also started the only postseason game he has played in, the 2016 NFC Wild Card Playoff at Green Bay. Harrison will wear No. 98 for the Packers.
Delontae Scott will now wear No. 75 for the Packers.
