Carson Palmer: Terrell Owens A Good Influence On Raiders' Receivers

Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer invited former teammate Terrell Owens along on a workout with the team’s current wide receiver corps, and told CSN Bay Area that the former Pro Bowler was a good influence on them.

“It was great for them, Palmer said. “It’s good to be around that. I think it was good for them to see that’s what it takes if you want to play for a long time and you want to be successful and have yards and catches and touchdowns and all that and that’s what it takes to work.”

“I love the guys we have,” Palmer said when asked if he thought the Raiders should sign Owens. “I don’t know where the spots are to be had. You can only carry so many receivers. . . . Training camp, at that position, is going to be really interesting because there’s a lot of guys. There’s too many guys.”

Owens, who turned 38 in December, did not play in the NFL last season. He had 72 catches for 983 yards in 2010 for the Cincinnati Bengals, then underwent surgery for a torn ACL in April 2011. He was medically cleared to play in 2011 but remained unsigned.

Owens played for the Indoor Football League Wrangles in 2012.
