GREEN BAY, Wis. — Another run-stopper is about the way into the Green Bay Packers to help them avoid getting run from the playoffs just like last season.
The Packers didn’t announce the move.
The Seahawks waived the 32-year-old defensive attack Monday after Harrison asked for his release. All players at this stage in the season are subject to waivers, and Harrison stated in a tweet following his release he wasn’t interested in becoming maintained. Nonetheless, in reaction to some tweet that indicated he would play to the Packers given they’re a Super Bowl team and a single which has been on his list of groups he intended to meet with until he signed with Seattle before this year, Harrison responded using a one-word conversation that read: “Bingo.”
A source told ESPN that Harrison promised the Packers he’d report playing Green Bay.
However, their run defense allowed them down at the NFC Championship Game, once the San Francisco 49ers rushed for 285 yards on the way to the Super Bowl.
When the Packers (12-3) triumph Sunday’s regular-season finale from the Chicago Bears, they’d function as No. 1 seed from the NFC and also have a first-round playoff bye. Even if they must play wild-card weekend, then they can get Harrison throughout the COVID-19 protocols and prepared for that weekend. They had been allowed a roster exemption for Harrison.
The Seahawks signed Harrison into the practice squad on Oct. 7 and he left his first appearance at a match on Nov. 15 from the Los Angeles Rams. He performed 138 complete snaps in six matches until he asked for his release. At the moment, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was under the belief that Harrison no longer wished to play with them.
“He is done. I spoke to him this afternoon. He is in great spirits and all that. He is very thankful for the chance in playing, and he’d well by us, but he just… he is done.”
