INDIANAPOLIS – Marvin Harrison’s reluctance to take a pay cut could mark the end of his career in Indianapolis.
Colts president Bill Polian told reporters Sunday at the NFL’s annual scouting combine that the team was trying to rework Harrison’s deal to lower the receiver’s salary cap number from approximately $13.4 million, the highest number of any wide out in the NFL.
But a person familiar with the negotiations, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team has not made an announcement, later told the Associated Press that Harrison “probably would not be interested in” reducing his base salary.
If Harrison decides against redoing his contract, the only other options for the Colts would be to keep Harrison at his cap number or to release him.
