Why Hasn’t Marvin Harrison Jr. Signed an NFLPA Licensing Deal?

May 3, 2024

Marvin Harrison Jr. is holding out, but not the type of holdout NFL teams are used to seeing.

Harrison, whom the Cardinals took No. 4 in last week’s NFL draft, has yet to sign the preliminary NFL Players’ Association licensing agreement, which allows the use of his likeness on merchandise such as jerseys and trading cards or in the popular video game, Madden.

Always take “reporting” from a radio host or TV personality with a grain of salt, but Pat McAfee said that sporting manufacturer Fanatics was the reason for the holdup. Harrison is the son of legendary NFL wideout Marvin Harrison, and both McAfee and Harrison Sr. spent their entire pro careers with the Colts. (Harrison Sr. retired in 2008, a year before McAfee was drafted by the Colts.)
