Listen: Lions Wire takes over the Huge Show for a day

Listen: Lions Wire’s Jeff Risdon takes over the Huge Show for a day of Lions talk

The afternoon drive across Michigan sounded a little different on Tuesday. Instead of Bill Simonson hosting his Huge Show, I got a chance to fill in for “Huge” for the day. It was a Lions Wire takeover.

I spent nearly all of the conversation on the Lions and what to make of the team with the NFL’s best offense but also the worst defense. Special guests included Scott Bischoff of the Detroit Lions Podcast, Jeremy Reisman of Pride of Detroit, Mark Schofield of SB Nation and Chris from the Detroit Lions Podcast.

Because it’s also dawning on basketball season, I had to give some thoughts on the Pistons too.

Lions are set to sign EDGE Charles Harris

Harris had 3 sacks with the Falcons in 2020

The Detroit Lions are adding another pass rusher to the mix. Per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, former Atlanta Falcons EDGE Charles Harris has agreed to sign with the Lions.

Harris was the Dolphins’ first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, taken exactly one spot after the Lions selected Jarrad Davis. As was the case with Detroit’s first-rounder that year, the Dolphins were bitterly disappointed with Harris.

He has just 6.5 sacks in four years, three of which came last season in Atlanta after the Dolphins traded him away for a seventh-round pick. The change in scenery and expectations helped Harris have his best NFL season with the Falcons.

Harris just turned 26 and did perform better in a more limited pass-rush specialist role with the Falcons. The 6-3, 252-pound Harris has been at his best as a stand-up rusher flanking a 7-tech DE.

Terms of the deal are not yet available.

Damon Harrison sends mixed signals on Twitter with his official release from the Lions

Damon Harrison sends mixed signals on Twitter with his official release from the Lions

Detroit Lions, correction, ex-Detroit Lions defensive tackle Damon Harrison tweeted out that picture about one minute after the news of his official release from the team became public.

There is no comment on the picture from Harrison, whose imminent release by the Lions was reported over the last week. But sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.

He did later respond to the Lions fans who commented, having nothing but nice things to say to the One Pride nation that supported him in his year and a half in Detroit. He’s rooting for the team and the city to finally get some wins:
