    There's absolutely no downside to this move. The potential upside is that we could end up in a Darwin James situation where a guy didn't want to be where he was, and wakes up when he gets cut.

    Yup. It would be stupid not to kick the tires on him.

    A season ago, Harrison led the Browns’ offensive tackles in pass-blocking grade when facing the blitz (81.4), against stunts (73.4), and on his ever-important red-zone snaps (76.7) — all of which ranked among the top-30 tackles in the NFL in 2018. Impressively, Harrison only allowed two total pressures on his 34 red-zone snaps, both of which came against some of the best pass-rushers in the NFL in Terrell Suggs and Melvin Ingram III.

    If Harrison can improve on his subpar run-blocking grade (47.7, 77th among 85 tackles) and continues to show promise as a pass-blocker, then the former Brown may be able to not only find a new home in the NFL but make an impact wherever he lands.

    He really does sound like a knucklehead. Had issues in college too.

    Hopefully getting cut wakes him up, we could use another tackle for sure - especially one good against the pass rush like him.

    Haha love the picture they used. Getting beat and holding. Not exactly a vote of confidence.

    But hey can’t hurt. The only potential waste in claiming this guy would be time.

    For the price they are paying him, buy him an administrative assistant. Preferably hire someone with babysitting experience.

    $600,000 is his salary? What do you do, if he comes here, plays lights out in training camp, so we cut other LTs, and then he goes back to missing team busses, etc? I guess cross that bridge if it gets that far into the process.

    A guy on an undrafted free agent contract who has starting experience

    That is incredibly lucky.

    You still play DJ but now you have options beyond resigning him

    as depth, this is a solid pick-up, especially since it's almost a given that DJ will play 8 games and then be out for the season... probably right after we sign him to a contract extension!

    Worthwhile pickup. Hopefully this ends up a waiver wire gem. If not, no big deal.

    I like this move. There is not much downside and the Cardinals get insurance for their offensive line.

    So the only picture they have of him is committing an egregious holding penalty?

    He's got a handful of jersey which where I come from is a penalty.
