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.

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- As bad as Carson Palmer's three-interception debut with the Oakland Raiders looked, he views it as a valuable teaching tool.
Did Terrell Owens try to kill himself again? That’s what it sounds like. Listen to the audio of a 911 call placed on October 6th. During the call, Terrell Owens’ assistant said that she believed T.O. was suffering from a pill overdose after a suicide attempt.

Not that one. Or that one. This one.
So, maybe no NFL teams showed up to watch Terrell Owens work out on Tuesday. Owens still maintained confidence that some team would be interested in his services, and as it turns out, he was right. It just might not be the team he had in mind.
It's the Chicago Rush of the Arena Football League. They want to bring T.O. into the 50-yard indoor...

Terrell Owens held a public workout to drum up interest for his attempted return to the NFL. One problem: Not a single NFL team showed up to watch the workout. Apparently, nobody wants to roll the dice on a 37-year-old wide receiver who is coming off of a major knee injury … and that’s not even mentioning T.O.’s legendary ability to destroy team chemistry.
Despite the non-existent...
Now that the glow of his reality-TV-show life has inevitably faded, Terrell Owens is left with this ugly truth: He's squandered so much good will, traded in enough talent for shallow adulation and so-often exchanged your good name for fleeting press that he's now more of an empty fraud than a famed star.
I say this with no joy. I say this knowing that we all help put him...

When I heard that former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens was holding a workout for teams to come and view his newly healed knee, my first thought was “oh okay…wait…that’s not how that works.” See, if a team is even mildy interested in you, they will invite YOU to THEIR facility to workout in drills THEY would like to see YOU do.
For whatever reason...
Would Terrell Owens, who has been unable to atract interest from an NFL team, be willing to play in the Arena Football League? Although his agent Drew Rosenhaus might bark, "Next question!" to such an idea, the Chicago Rush are willing to find out.
