AFC South Gets a Little Bit Easier: Marvin Harrison Released, And Other News & Tidbits

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...

The Raiders release tackle Kwame Harris. This basically guarentees that the Raiders are going to take a tackle with the #7 pick. Update your mocks accordingly.

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.

Falcons release Lawyer Milloy. The release of Milloy means one thing to the Texans - expect lots of competition for top-tier free agent safeties between Falcons, Saints, Texans, and others.

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?
