Hardy to switch to No. 84
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- For Bills fans filling out their programs: Yes, folks, T.O. will be No. 81.
Hardy, the team's second-round draft pick out of Indiana last year, wore No. 81 during his rookie season.
It's unclear whether Hardy will be compensated by Owens to switch numbers. In the past, veteran players joining new teams have been known to pay for or provide compensation for the right to switch numbers.
Owens has worn No. 81 throughout his NFL career, but wore No. 80 in college at Tennessee-Chattanooga.
