Every year, the speech from one of the new Hall of Fame inductees takes way too long. That likely won’t happen this year with former Colts receiver Marvin Harrison.
During his career, Harrison rarely spoke. At his Hall of Fame induction, he’s not expected to say much.
Former teammate Robert Mathis, who’ll play in the Hall of Fame game on Sunday night, gave on Thursday an estimate as to the length of the speech: “What is the average? 10 minutes? Seven minutes tops. Five-to-seven minutes.”
Even at an estimate of only five minutes, take the under. And then Harrison can yield the balance of his time to the gentleman from Hattiesburg.
