Poor Marvin: Harrison to Be Released By Colts

LaddCorrespondent IFebruary 19, 2009

Adam Shefter is reporting that the Colts will release Marvin Harrison any day now.

“It’s no longer a question of if Harrison, 36, will be let go.  It has become a question of when. It will happen in the coming days, certainly before the new league year starts a week from Friday, but few are sure exactly when.

"But make no mistake: It is happening. The Colts no longer can afford to carry Harrison, who is scheduled to have a $13.4 million number for an Indianapolis team that is starving for more salary-cap room to deal with free-agents-to-be such as CB Kelvin Hayden.

"If the Colts were to release Harrison, his $13.4 million number instantly would come off the books, saving the team $7 million against the cap. Harrison still would count $6.4 million in dead money, but more importantly, there would be the $7 million savings.”

 

I guess Colts coach Jim Caldwell was part of that same conversation about taking a dump on all the old guys’ heads.  We’ll miss you, Marv.  You were a good man.
