Pete Carroll has a reputation for being a prankster. Terrell Owens has a reputation for being a diva. Now that T.O has signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks, it only makes sense that the two would combine their most notable characteristics to pull a fast one on the rest of the team.

Anyone who knows the Seahawks could have anticipated that T.O. was going to get punked in some way during his first official team meeting on Wednesday. At first, it appeared that he did. Carroll called him up to the front of the room to share a personal story and then cut him off as soon as he started. The entire team screamed “sit down!” at him and it looked like T.O had fallen victim to some standard new-guy hazing. That’s when he and Carroll joined forces.

As you can see in the later part of the video above, Owens went back to the front of the room after being “punked” by the team and made a huge deal out of not being able to wear No. 81 because Golden Tate wears it. The team laughed through most of his speech, but given T.O.’s history of creating drama I’m sure many of the players thought he was serious. It wasn’t quite as good as this prank or this prank that Carroll executed to perfection, but it was still pretty funny and believable.
