Rodney Harrison, who played safety for the Patriots from 2003-2008 and is currently a free agent, was a guest on Dan Patrick's radio show on Wednesday. The topic of the NFL's rule changes was discussed, and Harrison said he thinks the league has gone too far.
A summary of Harrison's comments is posted on SI.com, where the audio to the interview is also available.
Harrison told Patrick that "football is supposed to be a man's sport" and "the game is going to slow down and it's going to get softer. It's like patty-cake right now."
