Coach Hue Jackson said the Raiders will work out veteran wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh on Tuesday.
Houshmandzadeh and Jackson were with the Cincinnati Bengals at the same time, along with new Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer.
Jackson said it’s uncertain whether Houshmandzadeh will be signed. He just wants to see what kind of shape Houshmanzadeh is in these days.
And, no, the workout doesn’t have anything to do with the history between Palmer and Houshmandzadeh, Jackson said. He wanted to work out Houshmandzadeh as far back as training camp.
Jackson isn’t sure whether the Raiders would carry seven wide receivers if Houshmandzadeh is signed.
“We’ll see what’s best for the team if we did sign him,” Jackson said.
