Marvin Harrison Still Looking For Work

May 8, 2009

NFL.com is reporting that Marvin Harrison still wants to play.  It’s just a matter of whether he can A) avoid jail time for last year’s gun incident and B) find a suitor.

Though he’s not the receiver he once was, he still managed to catch 60 passes for 636 yards and 5 TDs.  Not bad when you consider he has to share the ball with Reggie Wayne, Anthony Gonzalez, Dallas Clark, and Joseph Addai.

There was some speculation that he would reunite with Donovan McNabb in Philly, but they already have three WRs of his mold in DeSean Jackson, Kevin Curtis, and Rookie Jeremy Maclin.  If he proves he’s healthy, I still think he can find a home, especially if there is an injury in training camp or the preseason.  His agent, Tom Condon, just wants to make sure everyone knows he’s still out there.

    I wonder what his contract demands are. If he wants big money, I don’t see teams thinking he provides that value. If he’s willing to play for a reasonable amount, I can’t see how teams wouldn’t be interested. I wonder if this is the football version of Pedro Martinez.

    I guess it’s a matter of his ego and what he thinks he’s worth. Great analogy.
