Thursday October 27th, 2011

Newly minted Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer told 95.7 The GAME that despite having “a great working relationship” with Terrell Owens, he doesn't see him being able to fit on the team, according to

"T.O. and I had a great working relationship," Palmer told the radio station. "He had one of his most successful years over the past five or six years, a lot of production and he was a great teammate in Cincinnati. The problem is that for him to get here there's not anybody that we could let go."

The rumor mill has been churning over Owens and any potential teams that could be interested in the wide receiver’s services ever since he held an open workout that no NFL teams attended. Owens’ agent, Drew Rosenhaus claims that the move was simply to “create a buzz,” and that it certainly has.

Owens is attempting to make an NFL comeback after suffering an ACL injury that required surgery in April of this year. The enigmatic receiver played most recently with the Cincinnati Bengals and previously with the Buffalo Bills. Owens, a six-time Pro Bowler has hauled in 1,078 receptions for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns over his NFL career.
