Apparently, the Colts have granted Harrison is outright release, saving them a few millions in cap space.

I think this release is about 20% financial, 50% due to age/production decrease and 30% due to his off the field issues. Either way, even if Harrison never plays again, I will always remember him, on the field, as a consummate pro. Be that as it may, since I have Anthony Gonzalez in my keeper league, I couldn;t be happier with this news.

All the problems are the same, but you know instead of all the funny, pithy dialogue, everybody is really pissed off and tense. Marriage is like a tense, unfunny version of 'Everybody Loves Raymond', only it doesn't last 22 minutes. It lasts forever."

A future member of the Colts Ring of Honor, a future first-ballot Hall of Famer, someone whose #88 will never again be issued by the Colts, and a class act and gentleman. This marks the end of an era in Indianapolis.

...Having said that, it was pretty clearly time for him to go, anyway; his production due to age had dropped so much that it was hard to justify keeping him around. I think that apart from missing Marvin's on-field presence as a leader, this won't really hurt us all that much from a performance standpoint.

Seattle's still having trouble getting credit for what they're doing. Yeah, they've had some lucky breaks, especially against Eli and the Giants.
