If there were any lingering doubts that Rodney Harrison wouldn’t be a phenomenal NFL commentator, yesterday’s appearance on the Dan Patrick Show should put those to rest.
The former Patriots safety ripped into Packers/Jets/Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, calling the diva “selfish.”
“Each and every offseason bringing so much attention to himself. It’s just really a disappointment to hear that time and time again….If you’ve been in the league 13, 14, 15 years or so you know if you want to play. The circus shouldn’t have to go on for three to four years. It’s just a disappointment. Then the media they’re just so caught up and in love with Brett Favre … It’s ridiculous because a lot of guys are doing good, positive things in the National Football League and those keep things keep getting overlooked.”
Good stuff, but it cements the fact that Harrison will never work for ESPN.
