Throughout the early 2000's, former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh made a solid career for himself with his impressive route running and solid hands, complementing Chad Johnson on the outside.
Houshmandzadeh then went on to have brief, unsuccessful stops with the Seattle Seahawks, Baltimore Ravens and Oakland Raiders.
Though Houshmandzadeh has been out of the league for the past few seasons, he is back in the headlines after recent comments about Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. Sherman is usually the man who picks fights and starts "Twitter beefs" with his outspoken nature, but Houshmandzadeh's comments to TMZ will surely catch the attention of the Super Bowl champ.
After channeling his inner "Razor Ramon" with a tooth pick in his mouth and slicked back ponytail, Houshmandzadeh dropped his personal belief that Sherman would not be able to stop him on the field if the two met during their playing days.
Because of his ability to get open during one-on-one situations in his prime, Houshmandzadeh says there is "no chance" that Sherman would be able to stop him.
Part of being a successful receiver in the NFL is having a strong belief in yourself, so Houshmandzadeh's comments aren't entirely surprising, but they certainly come off a bit wishful. In order to beat Sherman, you can't get off the line like you are running in quick sand, so Houshmandzadeh is already at a disadvantage.
Houshmandzadeh finished his career with 627 catches for 7,237 yards and 44 touchdowns.
