​The Giants fire sale continues, and just like the first domino to fall, this comes on the defensive side of the ball. 


According to multiple sources, the Giants have traded Damon "Snacks" Harrison to the Detroit Lions for a fifth-round pick. 

Harrison was brought in by the Giants in 2016 from the Jets and was a first-team All Pro selection that year. He was signed to a five-year, $46.25 million deal and has been a productive player for the Giants in the middle of their defense. 


Despite that, Snacks was deemed expendable with the Giants sitting at 1-6 on the season, as will many players for the Giants. Cornerback Eli Apple was traded to the Saints a day earlier, and the Giants will likely try to deal more assets as they look to stockpile draft picks and remake this roster. 

The Lions, meanwhile, have won two straight and are now 3-3. They must feel they're in position to make a playoff run in a deep NFC North division. Snacks will certainly help solidify the middle of their defense, and the fact that they only had to give up a fifth rounder to him made the deal an easy decision. 

Now we'll see if Snacks can keep eating in Detroit.
