The price of free agent DT Damon Harrison is too high for the Jets, reports Jason Cole of Bleacher Report, who says the Titans are the current frontrunners for Harrison.
Harrison, 27, had 72 total tackles last season for the Jets.
He was signed by the Jets as an undrafted free agent in 2012.

With the "legal tampering window" now officially open, this is the kind of news we were anticipating. The Titans are a team that were pretty solid against the run last year with Al Woods at nose tackle, but could upgrade their run defense to one of their main strengths with this move.
I know Harrison is grateful to the Jets for the opportunity they've given him, but unfortunately, I don't think there's much chance he would accept less money to stay with them. Moving to Tennessee would be a great chance to maximize the value of what will likely be the largest contract of Harrison's career.
He'll also get a chance to establish himself as one of their more marketable stars. It will be very interesting to see how the Jets look to replace Harrison, if he does indeed leave.
