The all-time leading wide out for the Colts is going to be on the market within the next 24 hours, and the Eagles should do whatever it takes to make sure he’s wearing green next season. Yes, Marvin Harrison is 36, and he’s coming off a season in which he only caught 60 passes for 636 yards and five scores, but he would come to a system that right away makes him a great fit for Philadelphia.
He would be a great mentor for DeSean Jackson, and would upgrade the Eagles wide out position, that’s included looking at players already in free agency and possible draft picks that you never know could or could not pan out. Another thing going for the Eagles is that they have the money to spend on a WR like Harrison, who reportedly didn’t want to take a pay cut which is why he won’t be a Colt anymore.
Harrison has seen better days, but he’s an upgrade for the Eagles, and if there was a choice between he and say free agent WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh, I would think that Harrison, who lives in Philly, would appreciate coming home more, and would not demand the type of money that Houshmandzadeh would. It’s going to be up to the Eagles to make the move to try and get Harrison’s attention when the release is made, and if they are smart, they won’t waste anytime in doing it.
