On the ticker of ESPN, it has been reported that Marvin Harrison has been released.
Harrison, demanding more money than he was probably worth, was released as a cap casualty from the Colts today.
A couple of other news tidbits...
Lions QB Dan Orlovsky is going to become a free agent. This could complicate things in the Sage trade, as the Vikings might see him as a passable QB. Unless, of course, he is being chased out of the end zone. The decision not to resign comes from Jim Schwartz, the Lions HC, telling Orlovsky he would be backing up Daunte Culpepper in 2009.
That also puts in my mind that the Lions will NOT be taking Matt Stafford with the #1 pick. Look for Jason Smith, Eugene Monroe, or even Aaron Curry to go #1.
Even though it has already been reported, the Packers officially move to the 3-4 defense. With the Packers confident that Ryan Pickett, their 330 lb. DT, can play NT in the 3-4, look for the Pack to take Malcolm Jenkins with the 8th pick.
A little news, a little commentary, on stuff that may affect the Texans and/or the draft. What do you guys think?
