Packers Morning Buzz: Could it be 'Snacks' time in Green Bay?
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com.
We'll start with an ESPN report that free-agent defensive lineman Damon "Snacks" Harrison will be visiting the Packers on Wednesday:
Harrison, 31, is a noted run-stuffer who has played for the Jets, Giants and Lions. The 6-foot-3, 355-pound lineman started 15 games for Detroit last season.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Harrison earned his nickname while with the Jets because he reportedly was "always eating" in defensive meetings. A Jets assistant would put Rice Krispies Treats on Harrison's desk in the meeting room "just to see if I'd eat them," Harrison said.
Harrison reportedly has said he wants to sign with a winning team, so it's no surprise he'd want to meet with the Seahawks and Packers (both 4-0).
