T.O. to the Patriots: I might bring my spy camera out

FOXBOROUGH - Buffalo Bills superstar receiver Terrell Owens waited till the last question to make his biggest splash on Wednesday afternoon's conference call with the local media.

I'll see him Monday." The 35-year-old receiver missed most of training camp with a toe injury but is expected to be ready for the game against the Patriots.

Brady on Seymour: I've seen all of it

Tom Brady said that he is ready for the season opener against the Buffalo Bills on Monday night at Gillette Stadium and believes the team is as well, even with trade of Richard Seymour eight days before the first game. "I've seen all of it and I'm very fortunate to be in the same place my entire career," Brady said. "It's going to happen to all of us." The quarterback, who said he is comfortable with his knee brace, said leaders will eventually step into the roles of Seymour and Tedy Bruschi. "It remains to be seen," Brady said. "Every team has turnover. Every team has change. I've seen all of it. I've been fortunate to have been in the same place my whole career." For more, visit the football blog, It Is What It Is
