If Terrell Owens does find a new employer this season, it's unlikely he'll be catching passes from a former teammate.
Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer said he can't envision Owens being on the receiving end of his passes for a second straight season.
“The problem is that for him to get here there’s not anybody that we could let go," Palmer said referring to Oakland's stable of fast, young receivers. "It’s tough to give up a young guy with a lot of potential for a guy that’s got a lot of history in the league that’s in his late 30s, so I can’t see him coming here."
Owens had a strong connection with Palmer while with the Cincinnati Bengals last season, making 72 catches for 983 yards and nine touchdowns.
Palmer retired rather than return to the Bengals, and Owens is trying to find a job after suffering a torn ACL in the spring.
Owens held a personal open workout Tuesday to show he was healthy, but not one NFL scout attended the session.
