Terrell Owens loves the spotlight, and seeks it out to bask in its life-giving glow.

Underneath his often-controversial exterior however, I’m confident there’s a hard-working athlete who busts his tail to be one of the top players at his position.

If given the chance to interview T.O., these are the questions I would pose to the Bills' biggest offseason acquisition:

1. How do you feel about the Bills’ chances of success this season?

2. Trent Edwards is the youngest quarterback you have worked with in the NFL. What can a veteran like you do to help him progress?

3. What’s the adjustment to playing with the Bills been like compared to joining the Eagles and Cowboys?

4. Despite all the “other stuff," at the end of the day you’re a football player. How do you want to be remembered on the field when all is said and done with your career?

5. It seems that most of the media assumes it’s only a matter of time before things go south with you in Buffalo. How much does talk like that bother you?

6. You’ve spent your entire career in the NFC. Do you see any major differences between the two conferences that will require you to adjust?

7. Coming to the NFL from a small school, did you feel you had a lot to prove? Did it make you work harder?

8. Aside from your play-making ability, you’re well known for having some elaborate touchdown celebrations. Do you think the NFL is justified for fining or penalizing during games for such actions?

9. It would seem some of the “old guard” take more offense to your celebrations than younger people like me. Do you think it’s a generational thing?

10. How much do you still play basketball, and do you think playing in college helped you as a football player?
