    Anyone who lives in Minnesota (like me) and follows sports religiously (like me) knows that 99.999% of what Charley Walters writes is BS speculation with no merit whatsoever.

    Taking less money to catch passes from a 40 year old, man that sounds like a good deal for him.

    Tampa was looking at him too...

    One has to wonder did Brett say I need a top WR?

    I am getting nervous that they will get Marvin and will put it all on the line for 1 year to finish out strong. Still a lot of speculation, but I can see it happening.

    But Marvin Harrison hasn't played well for the last 2 years. WITH PAYTON MANNING. Can't see how he's gonna be an upgrade to anyone...

    He is still a good receiver who just needs to get back into football shape. But yeah, not playing for a great part of 2 years is going to slow him down some, but I can see him bouncing back if he works hard. DAM SPECULATION! Is the season here yet???

    He has worked hard the last 2 years. He's very well known for his professional off-field conduct (except for the bar incident). He has tried to maintain shape, but is just too old... IMO he's done.

    I agree he would never to put up 1200+ receiving yards, but he could still be a good receiver for Vikings if they got him. If they got Favre he could throw the deep ball (which he likes to do a lot) and have an expierenced wide receiver like Harrison to be there to make a play.
