Yet, if Darren McFadden hadn’t suffered a Lisfranc sprain in his right foot week 7...

Veteran free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens showed up at a Oakland Raiders workout two days ago, is a reunion with QB Carson Palmer in the cards? Perhaps. Oakland could use a veteran presence on a roster filled with fleet-footed but inexperienced receivers. The youthful receiving corps came away impressed according to QB Carson Palmer.

Though Carson Palmer won’t let on one way or the other that he is completely satisfied with the targets he has with the Oakland Raiders, and he is somewhat intimating who might be of help. Palmer invited Terrell Owens to a workout he had with his current pass catchers, and gave a glowing review of [...]
Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer and wide receivers Darrius Heyward-Bey, David Ausberry and Eddie McGee all spent time working out in California with veteran receiver Terrell Owens this offseason.
