Palmer says T.O. OK

Posted Mar 6, 2010

Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer has no problems throwing to former Bills wide receiver Terrell Owens. Or anyone else, for that matter, who can help the Bengals downfield passing game keep pace with the wheeling and dealing of AFC North rival Baltimore.

Owens has a volatile history. But that’s OK. Palmer has made history with some combustible wide receivers.

“I’d love to,” texted Palmer when asked about the possibility of throwing to Owens. “His past doesn’t bother me at all. If any qb can deal with extravagant wrs, it’s me.”

Palmer has already corresponded with Antonio Bryant and says he’s willing to reach out to Owens as they go through the free-agent process. Bryant, 29, is seen as the best young receiver left on the unrestricted free agent market and is two years removed from an 83-catch season.

Lamont Smith, Bryant’s agent, said his client has some visits lined up but does not have one scheduled yet for Cincinnati.

“I would say he has some interest in Cincinnati; that’s how I would characterize it,” Smith said. “He and Carson have exchanged some texts and that’s always a positive when the quarterback gets involved.”

Palmer took note of the Ravens’ trade on Friday for Arizona wide receiver Anquan Boldin.

“They’re making some moves,” Palmer said. “Whatever we can do to stay in the race."

Drew Rosenhaus, Owens’ agent, said in a Sirius NFL Radio Friday night interview that was reported on ProFootballTalk.com there has been some positive feedback from the Bengals.

“Where we go from here I'm not sure but I think it's at least a positive dialogue,” Rosenhaus said. “And we represent another great receiver on Cincinnati in Chad Ochocinco who would love to have No. 81 as his teammate. And we'll just see how that plays out. But certainly that's something that is a possibility. I guess that's the most I can say right now.”
