According to Colin Gay of The Columbus Dispatch and Chris Rosvoglou of The Spun, Pat McAfee suggested during Wednesday’s edition of “The Pat McAfee Show” that Harrison isn’t overly thrilled about the NFL’s working arrangement with manufacturer and retailer Fanatics.

“This revolves around a deal that’s allegedly being pitched to sophomores in college who have a name by a company named Fanatics,” McAfee explained. “I guess there was an offer made to Marvin Harrison Jr. whenever he was a sophomore in college, which happens to a lot of guys, where if you sign it, a card deal, an autograph deal, it’s for four years.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the Fanatics website had the following message on the Cardinals’ team page:
