We feel he’s coming in here at a good place. He’s coming into a great locker room. Guys have reached out to him and are willing to help him and to give him an opportunity to help our football team.

Ex-NFL player Tommie Harris to own FXFL team:
Former NFL players Tommie Harris and Eric Bassey are the first owners of a team in the new FXFL developmental league.
The Fall Experimental Football League, which has no affiliation with the NFL, plans to play six games in October and November in six U.S. cities. Harris and Bassey will own the Austin franchise, with other teams to be located in the New York and Boston areas; Omaha, Nebraska; Portland, Oregon; and a city in Florida yet to be determined.
Harris played eight seasons in the NFL, seven with Chicago, where he was a three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle. Bassey spent two seasons with the Rams as a defensive back.
