Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Marvin Harrison has played 13 seasons in the NFL, all with the Indianapolis Colts, and nearly all with Peyton Manning throwing the ball to him—but if reports are true, that's all over with now.

After missing most of 2007 with an injury, Harrison saw a huge dip in his production this year with career lows (not counting the injury year) in catches, yards and touchdowns. Oh, and there was the whole matter of him maybe taking a shot at someone. (Alleged! Possibly!) The move saves the Colts $7 million and reminds everyone yet again, that it doesn't matter what your name is once you've outlived your usefulness in this league.


Who knows if Harrison—who was very shaky this year—catches on somewhere else, but it will also end the most prolific passing combo ever. Manning and Harrison hold NFL records for completions, yards, and touchdowns by a quarterback-wide receiver duo. Of course, if he throws Peyton's trash in the dumpster on his way out the door, that could be one more.

Harrison's Indy days are done []
