Some of his new teammates were wearing "Deebo" T-shirts in their Foxborough locker room last week, and that was as good a calling card as any for James Harrison, writes NFL.com.
"Deebo," after all, was one of the nicknames bestowed on him during his previous life in Pittsburgh. It's a nod to the freakishly large character in the "Friday" movie series who takes other peoples' belongings by force, which sums up Harrison nicely, noted NFL.com.
But Harrison's sudden move from the Steelers to the Patriots, clearly, didn't go over well for many Pittsburgh fans.
"You always want to prove people wrong, you don't want to make them right, especially when they're telling you something you can't do," Harrison said.
Who, exactly, does he want to prove wrong?
"Anybody that doubts any of my abilities."
