Reports: Damon Harrison Signs With Giants

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Damon Harrison reportedly has a new team, but he'll still be reporting to work at the same place.

The defensive tackle, who has spent the past four seasons with the Jets, signed with the Giants, according to multiple reports.

The deal is reportedly for five years, $46.25 million with $24 million guaranteed, NFL Network reported.

Harrison, an undrafted rookie in 2012, started every game the past three seasons for the Jets. Last year, the 6-foot-4, 350-pound, run-stuffing lineman had 72 tackles.

The Jets expressed interest in re-signing the 27-year-old, whose nickname is "Snacks," but they entered free agency just $6.5 million under the salary cap -- the tightest situation of any team in the league. The Jets are also trying to re-sign quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, have slapped the franchise tag on free agent defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson and have a number of other needs they would like to address.

Earlier Wednesday, the Giants reached a deal with former Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins, while the Jets agreed to terms with ex-Bears running back Matt Forte.
