EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., March 9 (UPI) -- One free agent won't even have to leave the stadium to switch teams this off-season.

Defensive tackle Damon Harrison will change into a New York Giants jersey after wearing a New York Jets jersey in 2015.


Harrison agreed to the five-year, $24 million guaranteed deal Wednesday. The deal pays him $9 million annually, according to CBS NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

The 27-year-old, nicknamed: "Big Snacks," cashed in after signing with the Jets in 2012 as an undrafted free agent.

In four seasons, Harrison had 105 tackles, a forced fumble, and 1.5 sacks.

The Jets allowed 83.4 rushing yards per game last season, the second fewest allowed in the NFL. The Giants ranked No. 24 in that category.
