On a day when Americans learned how far the job market has sunk, one out of work receiver received his own bad news via NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora.
Speaking on Total Access, LaCanfora said that talent evaluators around the league believe that Marvin Harrison “may be done.” They are rating other free agent receivers like Amani Toomer and Joe Horn higher than Harrison.
The league’s new information man reports that Toomer has fielded calls from a few teams and is high on several teams’ “emergency list.”
Toomer and Harrison’s inability to find work is yet another reminder how fast things can change in the NFL.
Just last year, both players were starters on playoff teams. Now they are angling to be the first person called when some late-round draft picks tears a ligament in August.
There is considerable doubt whether Harrison even wants to play football again in a reserve role.
But it sounds like the choice may be made for the future Hall of Famer.
