    Will the Pats kick Marvin's tires? He's officially an FA right now.

    I hope not, but there is a small part of me that thinks the "idea" of Harrison and Moss splitting the field with Welker in the slot is legendary.

    Harrison had developed a case of alligator arms, and the Patriots can't have that out of the #3 outside spot.

    I'm not going to say that it hasn't crossed my mind. He would likely still be able to beat some of the floatsm and jetsom db's out there as defenses would have to play pick your poison with Moss and Welker. However, I would have to think that there are other, younger options who could do a similar job.

    Isn't he being released because his cap number is something like $13M? No way I want to add anything like that to our cap. Fix the D!

    For a 3rd or 4th WR he certainly still has a little left to fill the need,but if he is expecting the spotlight anymore,I hardly see the Pats or ANY other team looking at him

    Could you imagine the WR corps consisting of Moss,Welker,Harrison and then Gaffney? - That simply would not be fair to the other 31 teams

    Seeing how he did not want to take a pay cut I don't see this happening, knew this thread would be started eventually.

    The Eagles will overspend on Harrison to try to make McNabb happy.

    Write it down.

    From what I have read the Colts attempted to restructure Marvin's contract but Harrison refused. I don't know the details of what Harrison was offered, but usually a restructuring is an agreement to give the player the same amount of money, but over a longer period of time. If that is the case and Marvin said 'no', then that tells me he is going to want to be paid more than he is worth.

    Aside from what I am speculating Harrison will expect to be paid, there is his production. I agree with Deus, from what I have seen he seems to have developed alligator arms. Last year he was thrown to 112 times, catching 63 passes. That's 56%, which seems rather low given the rapport between Manning and Harrison. Harrison had 656 yards and just 10.4 yards per catch, another number that ranks very low among NFL receivers. Regardless of his past, how much can anybody expect from a wide receiver that will be 37 before the season starts?

    If he does play in 2009 I'd guess it will be for the Eagles. He can re-unite with McNabb, and be close enough to keep an eye on what's going on in his car wash and bar.

    Eagles are in good shape with draft picks and cap space, right?

    I think a more likely scenario is a trade for Anquan Boldin. Now, maybe the Cards will call his bluff, but I really think Boldin is prepared to sit.

    I think the Eagles are a legitimate super bowl contender with Boldin. I'd view this as far more likely than Marvin Harrison.

    Marvin Harrison is an egotistical thug who refused to renegotiate a contract he knows for a fact he's not worth with the team he's been with for 13 years.

    How exactly is he Patriots' material?

    Everyone is entitled to his opinion. I do NOT ever expect a player to voluntarily reduce his compensation without the right of free agency. Harrison and the team knew the amounts of the contract, and knew that perhaps the team might not think he is worth the money at some point. The time has come. The colts don't want him at the contracted amount. Harrison should be able to go look for someone else to play for. I don't what to tell you if you believe that Harrison hasn't given the colts all that they've paid for over his years there. And, no, I don't want him. I'd rather have Houz or Holt.
