From ESPN:

Two excerpts of interest:
Harrison, who was scheduled to enter free agency after this season, is guaranteed $22 million between now and 2006 and received a $6 million signing bonus. He is making $5.56 million this season.

And:
The structure of Harrison's contract will allow enough flexibility for the Colts to try to find a way to keep running back Edgerrin James. There is a $7 million roster bonus that can be converted into a signing bonus in order to lower Harrison's cap number in 2005 to around only $3.2 million.

This means a cap hit next year that is $2.36M less!

This should help, and as long as te CBA gets done and the cap goes up as expected due to the TV contracts, it shouldn't be a problem!
