Tied No. 8 – Damon Harrison (DT) and Mike Daniels (DE)
Both men are coming off of down years for the Detroit Lions. Damon Harrison, compatibly more a nose tackle than anything came over from the New York Giants in 2018. He was largely healthy his entire career and was even able to play 17 total regular-season games in 2018 due to the trade. Mike Daniels was a defensive end for the Lions after moving from Green Bay to their divisional rivals.
As far as both players go, neither appear to be starters in the NFL anymore. Both men have some accolades to their names, with Harrison being named an All-Pro with the Giants, and Daniels earning a Pro Bowl spot. Both men were fantastic against the rush during their careers in Green Bay and New York respectively, yet the Lions were only 21st against the rush in 2019. While they shouldn’t carry all the blame, it does reflect poorly on them.
As far as where they fit in the Browns? Neither man really has any position as of right now. The Browns brought in two new tackles in Jordan Elliot and Andrew Billing, both of whom should be able to help plug the interior of the line. As for the defensive end spot, they’re clearly not set with Olivier Vernon, and Adrian Clayborn, hence the rumored discussions about Yannick Ngakoue.
Do they fit?
Outside of filling in for someone that went down for the season due to injuries, no there appears to be no real fit for the pair from Detroit.
