Suggestion ==take away some of Mannings salary,divide it up with the ones you want to get rid of, keep Harrison. Please do not ship all the best players out to other teams. What makes Manning so great that everyone has to eat hay while he gets to keep cream of the crop. No other QB's available?

Harrison is old and done. Let him go. Also, MPenn is right. Take away some of Manning's salary and pick up some players that will help him win another super bowl. He needs the help.

You can't "take" away Manning's salary! He has to agree to re-structure his contract so there is more money available under the cap. I think Peyton would do that if there were some players that needed to be retained. But the rules would prohibit just taking away a portion of a player's salary just to sign another player!! BTW let Marvin go, his skills have eroded.

They are all paid to much.Most of them gives sports a bad name. The way the things are going hardly anyone, will be able to attend the games, So you'll be spending all this money and have anyone in the standa.

Reality Check! I've enjoyed watching all the Colts, Marvin included, but in this economy, to hear a multi-million dollar earner doesn't want to take a pay cut and give up any of their MILLIONS of dollars. I'm sorry they're struggling to make ends meet. Let them walk in my shoes.

At this point in time, I feel that many major league players are no better than some of the financial institutions. It doesn't matter about the people who have put "stock" into them, its all about number ONE. It too bad I don't earn enough to really pitty them.

Why is this any different that anyone else.He is being offered a pay cut.It is his option to accept it or to decline it and look for another job,or retire.Just like anyone else.The fact that he makes millions a year instead of $15 an hour is not part of the issue.Harrison has to base his decision on the same thing we base are decision on,is someone willing to pay me more than my current employer is after they cut my wages.I would guess that most of us would make the same decision if we had the choice.

Marvin has done a nice job but this is business and we are in a recession. He need to join all of us in a little reality break. He is not worth what he is being paid. He could not get 1/2 of what he is asking in the open market. He is much slower now and he is just a poor "possesion" reciever. If he is ready to draw the line it is time for the Colts to thank him and let him go. It is his choice he has a few days to think it over, I can think of 10 free agent recievers that are fair better that the Colts can use their maoney on,.
