T.J. Houshmandzadeh On Seahawks: 'Nobody On That Team Beat Me Out'

New Baltimore Ravens wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh tells Edward Lee of the Baltimore Sun that non-football reasons that the led the Seattle Seahawks to release him.

“This is my opinion: me not being there, I can promise you, had nothing to do with football. Not in my opinion,” he said. “Nobody on that team beat me out. [If] they’re honest with themselves, they know that. If you watch practice, it’s obvious, but whatever reason, they did what they did. I’m not going to comment on it and get to throwing rocks because I just don’t want to. But that’s what they felt like they needed to do. You guys will see what I can do. I’m very confident in myself and people say I’m probably too confident in myself, but I don’t care because I believe in myself. I kind of got disappointed with what happened in Seattle, but I know I can play. I know I can get it done. They know I can get it done. What they did, I don’t really want to comment on because it makes me really upset. But it happened.”
