Former Patriots safety and current NBC football analyst Rodney Harrison isn't afraid to speak his mind.
But he doesn't tweet his mind.
Last week, an account with the name "Rodneyh37", which includes a picture of Harrison holding up the Lombardi trophy, engaged in some back-and-forth Twitter trash talk with Jets safety Kerry Rhodes.
Major news operations picked up on the exchange, but it turns out Harrison wasn't behind the keyboard.
"Rodney does not tweet, does not know how to tweet," said Brian Walker, senior director of communications for NBC.
