BaltimoreRavens.com blogger Ryan Mink says former Bills receiver James Hardy still plans on becoming a superstar NFL receiver because of what he learned from Terrell Owens in 2009.

"I learned to be a professional [in Buffalo]," Hardy said while working out with the Ravens recently at Towson State. "I learned how to do things behind closed doors by watching Terrell Owens, so I can be that elite receiver. Hopefully that will happen here."

The Bills drafted Hardy 41st overall in 2008 and cut him after just 10 receptions over two seasons. He remained unemployed for the entire regular season. The Ravens signed him in January to a futures contract.
