So it seems that Terrell Owens’ impressive workout wasn’t the only thing that convinced the Seattle Seahawks to sign Owens to a one-year deal. Owens also got a glowing reference from former teammate Carson Palmer.
The duo spent the offseason working out together and when Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll asked Palmer for his opinion of Owens, Palmer gave high praise.
“He loved working with him, loved playing with him. He worked out with him, and knows him really well,” Carroll said. “It was really pleasing to hear that.”
Palmer said he had no problem giving an endorsement for Owens.
“Just knowing (Carroll’s) style and the way he goes about teaching and leading his team, I just thought T.O. would be a great fit,” Palmer said. “I really enjoyed playing with (Owens). It was a great relationship when I was there, and I just let coach know I thought he would fit in really well with his style. I think they’ll have a lot of success together.”
Everything we’re hearing about Owens lately sounds positive. Hopefully, it stays that way.
