If f and g are integers, is fg + 2 prime?

(1) f is odd.
(2) g is even.

Even when we take the statements together they are not sufficient to answer the question:

If f is any odd number and g=0, then fg+2=2=prime;
If f is any odd number and g=2, then fg+2 is some even number other than 2, thus not a prime.
