QB says former star was a good influence on young WR corps
|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. “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.” Owens, who turned 38 in December, did not play in the NFL last season.
FF Today's Take: Is the veteran quarterback lobbying for the signing of his former teammate or was this simply to provide a good influence for his young receivers like Palmer claimed? It's difficult to say, but is the much-maligned Owens really the player you'd bring along to provide a positive impact on your inexperienced receivers?
