Marvin Harrison‘s agent said Monday that the Colts had agreed to release the veteran wide receiver.
Not so fast, Colts owner Jim Irsay said.
Irsay told the Indianapolis Star that he would meet with Harrison on Tuesday to try to work out a deal that would keep the wide receiver for a 14th season with the Colts.
- “Marvin and I are talking (today) at mid-afternoon and we’ll see where we go from there,” Irsay said. “I’m not going to start talking like he’s not here, because nothing’s been determined officially by any stretch.”
- Asked if it still were possible for Harrison to remain with the Colts, Irsay replied, “Definitely.”
Irsay called a Tuesday afternoon press conference, presumably to address Harrison’s future with the team.
The Colts want to rework Harrison’s current contract, under which he’s scheduled to make $9 million next season. Harrison also would count $13.4 million against the salary cap, which is projected to be $123 million.
