The former hard-hitting Patriots safety, 36, announced last week that he's retiring to join NBC's Football Night in America studio show.
Dan Patrick: Don't lie. You retired so you could work on Football Night in America with me.
Rodney Harrison: I was thinking about going back to the Patriots when I found out it was you. I thought it was going to be Bob Costas.
DP: Could you have played this year?
RH: I could have. Probably not practice and training camp, but I feel pretty good. I still would have been able to run, jump and knock somebody's teeth out of their mouth [in games].
DP: You played 15 years. Do you know how much money you were fined?
RH: A whole lot. Probably more money than my mother's ever made in her life. Probably close to $300,000.
DP: You did have the helmet-to-helmet hit on Jerry Rice [in 2002]. That cost you a game check of $111,000.
