Bills wide receiver James Hardy appeared on Sirius NFL Radio this weekend and was asked about turning over number 81 to his new teammate and fellow wideout Terrell Owens.
“(Terrell Owens) is over a 10-year veteran and usually the organization, really they can just take the number from you and give it to him if they wanted to,” said Hardy. “But with the respect the general manager has for me, he came to me and I was willing to give him the number. He’s a Hall of Fame receiver and it was really an honor for me to give him the number.”
If in fact Owens stay in Buffalo only lasts one season, it will be interesting to see if Hardy looks to reclaim 81. In 2009 Hardy will wear 84.
