Terrell Owens hasn’t always had a good relationship with his quarterbacks. Just ask Jeff Garcia. Or Donovan McNabb. Or Tony Romo.
But after reports surfaced that the Bengals are interested in Owens, Cincinnati quarterback Carson Palmer said he welcomes the opportunity to play with T.O.
“I’d love to,” Palmer texted back when Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com asked if he’d like to pass to Owens this season. “His past doesn’t bother me at all. If any qb can deal with extravagant wrs, it’s me.”
Palmer said he’d be happy to get involved in wooing Owens personally. He also said he had reached out to another free agent wide receiver, Antonio Bryant, and hopes the Bengals will make him an offer.
From Palmer’s perspective, adding a playmaker at wide receiver is something the Bengals need to do to keep pace with the division rival Baltimore Ravens, who traded for Anquan Boldin on Friday.
“They’re making some moves,” Palmer said. “Whatever we can do to stay in the race.”
