I just got off the telephone with ESPN’s John Clayton.
OwensTo be clear, Clayton is not reporting that the Raiders will soon be visiting with free agent receiver Terrell Owens. Clayton said that it is his opinion that Oakland could be interested in Owens.
It wouldn’t surprise me, either.
The Raiders have been very quiet this offseason and that is not Al Davis’ style. He likes to create a stir, at least, once an offseason.
Plus, Owens would be a veteran presence on an otherwise young receiving crew. He’d fill a role, even though his production has been declining.
I don’t think the Raiders need to make this move. But with Owens on the market and there being little interest in him, I agree with Clayton. Oakland could be an option.
