TAMPA – The internet is starting to fill up with reports of the Bucs expressing some form or interest in former Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison.

This one seems a little far-fetched, given the fact the Bucs dumped a pretty good aging receiver in Joey Galloway just a few months ago.

That said, the Bucs do seem to be in the market for another wideout, and Harrison, 36, probably has a little something left in the tank.

You really have to wonder, though, if Harrison would be interested in playing for Tampa Bay.

This is a team that’s shaping up to be an also-ran in the playoff race next year and we’re sure that Harrison would much rather play for a contender.

Beggers can’t be choosers, though, and despite his past Harrison doesn’t seem to be high on anyone’s radar right now. Except maybe the Bucs.

The guess here is that Harrison and the Bucs never hook up and that this story becomes nothing more than talk radio fodder. Even so, you have to give the Bucs credit for looking at every possible option in an effort to improve their team.
