Could Terrell Owens be a Fit with the 2012 Raiders?

Could Terrell Owens be a fit for the Raiders?

They are known as the team that likes to take former troublemakers aboard, and after playing with the Bengals two years ago, a former QB now with Oakland gave him somewhat of an endorsement.

Carson Palmer invited Owens along for a workout this past offseason along with Raiders wide outs Darrius Heyward-Bey and Eddie McGee and tight end David Ausberry.

Palmer didn’t come right out and say he wanted Owens, but at the same time seemed to be more positive than negative about Owens.

“I love the guys we have,” Palmer said. “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. There’s too many guys.”

The QB did say that he did like having Owens at the workout.

“It was great for them,” Palmer said. “It’s good to be around that. I think it was good for them to see that’s what it takes if you want to play for a long time and you want to be successful and have yards and catches and touchdowns and all that and that’s what it takes to work.”

Owens has been playing in the Arena League, but still has quite the resume for a team looking with a NFL career  1,078 receptions, 15,934 receiving yards and 153 receiving TDs.
