Tony Dungy isn't necessarily saying the Chicago Bears need help at receiver, but if Lovie Smith were to ask Dungy about Marvin Harrison, the endorsement would be strong.

"I think he definitely can play, and I would encourage Lovie to sign him if they had an opening," Dungy said Wednesday on the "Waddle & Silvy" show on ESPN 1000.

Dungy coached Harrison for seven seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. Dungy retired last year and is an NBC analyst. The 36-year-old Harrison is an eight-time Pro Bowl selection, and the free agent is waiting to catch on with a team.

"Marvin can play the game," Dungy said. "Marvin can get open and catch the ball.

"Marvin's whole thing is precision. He's a guy who needs work in a system."
