Snacks Harrison Talks About Detroit Lions Situation
Snacks Harrison recently talked about his situation with the Detroit Lions during a recent interview.
Appearing on the Green Light with Chris Long podcast, Harrison acknowledged a rift with how head coach Matt Patricia ran things.
“I tried to get out of it,” Harrison said of Patricia’s decision to play 3-technique.
“We had some conversations about not doing it anymore, and they kind of incorporated some of that zero nose, shade to kind of fit my play style. But it was something that I wasn’t comfortable with. I had some success doing it, but this past year I think it kind of came back to bite me in the a–.
“I wasn’t prepared for the season mentally. I came into camp in shape, but during the first three weeks of camp I think I kind of worked myself out of shape because I wasn’t doing anything.”
In the end, the divide was just too big.
“That was a time where, to be honest with you, we were trying to facilitate a trade,” he said.
“I was hell-bent on getting out of there. It’s nothing against the people of Detroit, the city or anything like that. I’ll forever love the city of Detroit.
“But I just had to go try to put myself in a situation where I saw myself there for two or three years to end my career, and I just didn’t see myself in Detroit for that long.”
How will the Lions ultimately replace his production? Time will tell.
