Welcome to The BK Lounge!

No, you’re not at a Dane Cook stand-up show. You’re reading my thoughts on sports; Which I thank you very much for.

But this is really exciting. Thank you to the digital staff from 93.5 and 107.5 The Fan for allowing me to share my opinions on what’s happening here in our 317 sports landscape. It’s an absolute pleasure.

While I have you here, I want to tell you about a significant cut that more than likely will be made by the Indianapolis Colts in the near future.

Soon the roster will be cut to 53 after the Blue and White square off with the Detroit Lions Friday night. We’ve heard all about the wide receiver room especially.

Is Mike Strachan the next Michael Irvin? Relax, but he absolutely should get that fifth WR spot.

Will Dezmon Patmon finally carve out a role for himself in the Colts offense? Not sure if he has outplayed Strachan, but he’s certainly in the conversation and will be a difficult cut.

There is one name though that has been overshadowed by the Strachan vs Patmon talk.

And that’s DeMichael Harris.

Being at camp along with Kevin Bowen for the last month, Harris was one of the guys that immediately caught me eye of someone who came into Westfield with absolutely nothing to lose.

Harris looked sharp along with Philip Rivers in 2020. At one point, he was targeted eight times in his rookie season, and he caught all eight balls.

The wide receiver room for the Colts is just built like a Fortune 500 company. Studs in every direction.

When Frank Reich gets down to the nitty gritty, Harris is going to be a name that may give him a sleepless night. All training camp long, Harris has been rock solid.

So much so, that he easily became a favorite receiving option of Sam Ehlinger. Later, developed a nice connection with Jacob Eason; Especially after the Carolina Panthers joint practices.

The play of Harris gives you another weapon down field for Carson Wentz. And in all seriousness, Wentz took 91 throws in the final three days of practice from Grand Park. That doesn’t seem like a guy who isn’t playing Week 1.

But will Harris be on that 53-man roster?

Instincts say no, but sneaking him on the practice squad may be more difficult than last year. Teams are always looking for a leg up around the NFL.

And now that Harris has shown he can play, it may be just a matter of time until whatever receiver the Colts cut gets scooped up faster than the water jug on the last day of camp practice.
