Yea I was thinking about this as well. It's possible with the rejuvenated Edge and the struggling Marvin that they might go against what everyone expected and give Edge the big dollars leaving Marvin out to dry. Then if they felt WR was a big need, after Mike Williams and possibly Braylon the next tier of WRs (Chris Henry, Mark Clayton, healthy Martin Nance etc.) is pretty deep.

While they might be seeing what the other wr's have, they need Harrison to have a great year if they are letting him go. If he has a great year, the Colts will get a better compensatory pick in next year's draft. And the important thing is winning. Peyton makes such quick decisions, that he's not thinking about passing on harrison and throwing to Wayne, for those aforementioned reasons.

Also, the Colts are dumb if they re-sign an aging Edgerrin. He doesn't have many years left.

FWIW:

News: According to the Indy Star, Colts owner Irsay said the team has every intention of re-signing Marvin Harrison and Edgerrin James. Both players will be unrestricted free agents at the end of the season. "I look at both of those guys being here (in 2005)," Irsay said. "I told you on Peyton that he wasn't going anywhere, and he didn't. It's just a question of timing. Both guys are going to get done."

I said this in a similar thread but there just arent enough yds, td's, and passes to go around. The way the other receivers are stepping up, the way Peyton likes to spread it around more with it working, i dont see Harrison having the type of years hes had where he was the main and only target. I'm sure he'll blow up here and there, but i dont think hes going to be like previous years, especially with Wayne turning into a star himself. Stokely isnt a fluke. D. Clark/Pollard are going to get their passes too. Not to mention James taking away from all of them.

It appears to me that Wayne is transitioning into the No. 1 and Harrison dropping back as the No. 2 sort of like the recent Bruce/Holt era. This year with Bruce and Holt I can't explain though so far other than Holt must be getting swamped, leaving Bruce open.

I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but I certainly wouldn't call 26 "aging", not even by RB standards. He's a very nice fit for that offense in all aspects. If they could keep that corps together for at least another 3 years, they should continue to have an excellent shot at reaching the big show.

financially, wont it be almost impossible to resign both Edge and Marv after Mannings huge contract? One of those 3 is going to have to take a paycut.

As for Edge - he's relatively young still.

Edge is a young 26 also considering he missed that year with the knee injury and has one year less punishment on his body.

think marvin might be gone after this year then? logically, i would think they have more of a need for edge than marvin because of the emergence of wayne and stokely (as well as 2 good TE's). but he's such an institution there with manning, it's hard to see him ever leaving...
It doesn't need to be in good taste, so long as it tastes good

No, it's not impossible because they will Franchise tag one of them and sign the other. But if they go this route you have to wonder how pathetic the supporting cast will be. They won't be able to afford much else.
