Marvin Harrison criticizes Terrell Owens, who responds with 'shots fired' joke

The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced its class of 2016 over Super Bowl weekend, and former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Terrell Owens did not get in. He initially was gracious about it, but in the subsequent days and weeks, let loose with plenty of dismay, claiming he was being disrespected in spite of his all-time great numbers.

Wide receiver Marvin Harrison got in on this ballot, and there is some thought that receivers are in line and will basically just be getting in one at a time for now. Harrison was recently asked about the potential of splitting votes with TO in an interview with Talk of Fame Network. Harrison was blunt in his comments, saying the person who was supposed to get in, got in, and that TO, "can get his ass in whenever he gets in ... if he gets in. If he doesn't get in too bad. The hell with him.''

Alrighty then.

There was plenty of chatter about it today, and TO dropped this sly line on Twitter.

For those that don't know, Marvin Harrison has been connected to some shooting incidents over the years. He was never charged in any of these incidents, but there has been plenty of chatter about what his involvement may or may not have been.

Harrison has kept fairly quiet, but if any of the stories are even partially true, I'm not sure making gun jokes is the smartest move for TO.
