Marvin Harrison NOT retiring, Peter King's "Twitter" sources full of it

Once again, Peter King is made to look like a fool. Maybe he should "tweet" less and do some more, you know, real reporting. From NFL.com's Steve Wyche:

Former Colts WR Marvin Harrison, now a free agent, said he has no plans to retire and that he wants to play in 2009, according to his agent, Tom Condon.

The problematic knee that has limited some of Harrison’s speed and overall effectiveness the past two seasons hasn’t been an issue either, Condon said.

"I played in 15 games last year and a playoff game, and I intend to play again this season," Condon said Harrison told him in a conversation Thursday afternoon.

Well gee. I wonder who Peter King's "reliable source" was when he tweeted this the other night:

"I've been told reliably that Marvin Harrison's not playing any more. Knee hurts. Can't get healthy like the old Marvin."

It will be interesting to see where Marvin plays in 2009, but one thing is clear. He is indeed bound and determined to play in 2009.
