T.O. doesn’t mind leading if it’s called for

Terrell Owens was asked if he sees himself in a leadership role with the Bills. Knowing there are some proud leaders on the roster already, Owens wisely chose his words carefully, while also trying to clear up a common misconception about himself.

“I can do that,” said Owens of being a leader. “And it can be blown out of proportion just like last year. They’ll be clips shown of me barking at a guy, this and that. In my mind that’s leadership, but in somebody else’s eyes that’s me being disruptive to the team, so for me, I’ll voice my opinion when need be but overall, if you ask my teammates, I’m pretty much a quiet guy.”

And just a few minutes later when Kawika Mitchell was asked about his initial impressions of Owens as a teammate he used the same word that Owens did to describe him.

“So far, quiet,” said Mitchell of Owens. “He’s just been keeping to himself and doing his regular routine I would imagine. But it’s pretty much like having any new player. I didn’t get to meet a lot of new rookies, it’s almost pretty much the same thing, except we know who he is and what he brings to the table.”
