Fanatics’ lawsuit against Arizona Cardinals rookie wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. has taken an interesting twist.

Last week, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Fanatics is suing Marvin Harrison Jr. for breaching his contract. Fanatics claimed that Harrison Jr. signed a contract last year worth seven figures, while his side says they never agreed to a deal.

In an update, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Harrison Jr. has officially signed his rookie contract with the Arizona Cardinals. Because of this, his jersey can now be sold, per the NFL’pa’s licensing agreement.

Harrison Jr., the son of Indianapolis Colts legend and Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison, was drafted fourth overall by the Cardinals. He was the first non-QB selected, behind Caleb Williams (first overall to the Chicago Bears), Jayden Daniels (second to the Washington Commanders) and Drake Maye (third to the New England Patriots).


In his final season with the Ohio State Buckeyes, Marvin Harrison Jr. hauled in 67 receptions for 1,211 yards and 14 touchdowns. The year before, Harrison Jr. racked up 77 catches for 1,263 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Arizona will open their 2024 season with a road contest against Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills at Highmark Stadium on Sept. 8. A week later, the Cardinals will travel back to The Desert to welcome the Los Angeles Rams in their home opener.

Marvin Harrison Jr. Should Go Off As A Rookie

Regarded by many as a generational wide receiver prospect, Harrison Jr. is in a good spot to produce early and often in Arizona.

Outside of third-year tight end Trey McBride, quarterback Kyler Murray lacked reliable pass-catchers in 2023. But Harrison Jr. will immediately slot in as the go-to part of this offense, and Murray’s ability to scramble and extend plays will help the Ohio State light up the scoreboard.

With Murry, Harrison Jr., McBride and running back James Conner leading the way, Arizona has the star power to produce a top-10 offense next season.

AFC Contender Stuns Everybody By Acquiring Cardinals Superstar Safety Budda Baker In Blockbuster Trade Proposal

NFL teams looking to bolster their secondary ahead of the 2024 regular season should contact the Arizona Cardinals to inquire about the availability of Pro Bowl safety Budda Baker.

Last year, Budda Baker told the Cardinals he wanted a trade or receive a deal that would make him football’s highest-paid safety, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Baker and Arizona agreed to a new deal that gave him incentives and a pay raise.

The 28-year-old Baker is entering the final year of his contract. With Arizona in retooling mode, it makes sense for GM Monti Ossenfort to trade Baker rather than lose him for nothing in free agency next year.

If Baker were to hit the trade block, there would be no shortage of teams interested in the six-time Pro Bowler. But if there’s one contending team that should be ultra-motivated to make a move for Baker, it’s the Jacksonville Jaguars.

 


Jacksonville’s pass defense was ranked 26th last season, allowing 239.8 yards through the air per game. Given the onslaught of elite quarterbacks in the AFC, the Jaguars must find another game-changer in the secondary.

Budda Baker is one of the best ball-hawking defensive backs in the game, with 34 pass breakups and seven interceptions in his career. The Jaguars haven’t had a game-wrecking defensive back like Baker since Jalen Ramsey, who last played for them in 2019.

What The Jaguars Should Offer For Budda Baker

The Jaguars still have quarterback Trevor Lawrence, running back Travis Etienne Jr. and linebacker Travon Walker on their rookie contracts. Their competitive window is wide open, so this is the ideal time for GM Trent Baalke to complete a blockbuster trade.

Jacksonville should offer at least Arizona a 2025 third-round draft pick for Baker. If he’s willing to sign an extension as part of the trade, the Jaguars can throw in an additional mid or late-round selection.
