INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indianapolis Colts released Marvin Harrison on Tuesday, ending the star receiver’s 13 years with the team.

Colts owner Jim Irsay grudgingly honored Harrison’s request to be released after meeting with him in a final effort to re-sign the franchise’s career receiving leader.

Harrison would have counted $13.4 million against the cap in 2009, the highest of any NFL receiver. Although Indianapolis wanted to restructure Harrison’s contract, Polian said there was no feasible way to do it.
