Harrison Signs New $66 Million Deal With Colts

By DAVE GOLDBERG
Marvin Harrison decided to stick around with the Indianapolis Colts as Peyton Manning's primary target.

Harrison agreed to a six-year, $66 million contract with the team Wednesday that includes a $22 million signing bonus, according to a source within the league who requested anonymity.

The star receiver is making $5.56 million this season.

Harrison, 32, who set an NFL record with 143 receptions in the 2002 season, has 826 receptions in nearly nine seasons with the Colts after being their first-round draft pick in 1996. Earlier this season, he passed the 800-catch mark faster than any receiver in NFL history.

He and Manning have also combined for more completions than any other quarterback and receiver, passing Jim Kelly and Andre Reed of the Buffalo Bills. They are second in career touchdowns to Steve Young and Jerry Rice of San Francisco.

The deal was first reported by ESPN.

Harrison, who would have become a free agent on March 1, has 67 catches for 870 yards and 12 touchdowns this season, far less than his record pace.

But that is largely because Reggie Wayne and Brandon Stokley have emerged as alternate targets for Manning, who with 44 TD passes in 12 games is just four away from Dan Marino's single-season record. In Manning's early years in Indianapolis, Harrison was the team's only consistent wide receiver.

The Colts had no immediate comment on the deal.
