Former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison was on Twitter this afternoon answering questions, and one fan asked him who the best player he’s ever played with would be.

On the offensive side of the ball one Harrison picked Tom Brady and Randy Moss.

On the defensive side of the ball, Harrison’s selection was somewhat surprising.

Was it Tedy Bruschi? Richard Seymour?  Vince Wilfork?  Mike Vrabel?  Maybe someone from the 2003 or 2004 championship teams?

No, here’s who he picked:

Tweeted Harrison: “On the defensive side, Junior Seau is the best that I played with.”

Seau played with Harrison back in San Diego before the former safety came to New England, and it looks like those days – along with the seasons he played here in New England – made quite an impression on the current NBC and NFL Network analyst.

Harrison goes on to Tweet that he expects the Patriots to be better defensively this year, and thinks they’ll be in the ‘top 5′ for points allowed this season.
