Owens made a couple of light-hearted jabs at New England during a conference call with the Patriots media this week, including a reference to the Spygate saga. Harrison obviously didn’t think it was funny.
“I’m pumped about T.O. opening up his big mouth about the Patriots,” Harrison said on WEEI’s The Dale and Holley Show. “I can actually put a bounty on T.O. if I wanted and not get in any trouble.”
Although Harrison described Owens’ play as “phenomenal,” He thinks Owens’ antics off the field overshadows what he does on it.
“He’s a clown,” said Harrison, who retired this summer after a 15-year career, the last six in New England. “He’s all about the circus show and the cameras. But you better believe he’ll have [cornerback] Shawn Springs in his grill and [safety] Brandon Meriweather putting his helmet down his throat. So, I’m excited about seeing that on Monday.”
