After acquiring interior defensive lineman Gerald McCoy during free agency, it appears the Dallas Cowboys are still looking to add to their front seven.

According to reports around the league, Dallas may look into acquiring Damon “Snacks” Harrison before the free agency period is over.

Harrison has spent most of his career playing in New York, for both the Giants and the Jets, before getting traded halfway through 2019 to the Detroit Lions.

Harrison isn’t much of pass rusher, as he’s only recorded 11 sacks during his eight-year NFL career, but pairing him with a defensive tackle like Gerald McCoy could make for a perfect duo.

McCoy has made a living by getting to the quarterback from the interior of the defensive line. Placing his pass rushing ability next to the 350 pound run-stuffing Harrison would make the Cowboys defensive line a nightmare to deal with.

Under the Cowboys last coaching regime, prioritizing the interior defensive line was unheard of. Now with Mike McCarthy at the helm, it seems like the organization has made a philosophy change in that regard.

At 31-years-old, Harrison likely won’t cost much to acquire, which makes him more appealing to a team like the Cowboys since they’re a bit cap strapped after signing Amari Cooper and franchise tagging Dak Prescott.

Keep an eye on Snacks Harrison to Big-D. It appears like it may be a real possibility.
