    lol @ Palmer staying 'retired'.

    Was never going to happen.

    It was a power struggle, and the minute Palmer wanted to push his hand, he could have unretired and messed up the Bengals' cap.

    I'm shocked to see Charlie taking the Owners' side on this... but oh well.

    Or you can get 2 first round picks out of 'em...

    Jeez, Mike Brown is making himself look a little better.

The Bengals could use help at guard, safety and receiver, and I think the Raiders could part ways with one of their better receivers for him. Denarius Moore and a 2013 3rd rounder would be fine by me.
    That would be a decent trade. Of course I don't want to see the Raiders get Palmer, I'm fine if they just don't have a QB.

    Favre was a running joke. They even made commercials mocking him about not retiring. He was a punchline.

    Don't be silly. Carson Palmer isn't some broken-down 42-year-old quarterback. He's still got a lot left in the tank. He's in the middle of a power struggle with the owner.

    Any sensible owner would only want players who want to be on the team and would gladly get best value for Palmer, especially in light of the fact that Andy Dalton is clearly more than serviceable as a replacement. Besides, Palmer seemed to regress a bit from his best days before the playoff knee injury. If some team is looking to overpay for a guy who's not helping the team — and is in fact hurting the team by forcing it to keep cap room open for his salary, given the threat of his return should they not be able to accomodate it — then you pull the trigger.

    But this is Mike Brown we're talking about here. His pride is hurt. He thought of Palmer as his best pick ever, and the fact that Palmer wants out clearly has the guy heartbroken. He'd rather hurt Palmer by not letting him play the game he loves anymore.

    Of course, if he comes to his senses and gets a ton more than he deserves in exchange for Palmer, then everyone's going to think his whole approach to the situation was a genius move. And then everyone will start heaping praise on Mike Brown, a guy who finally "gets it."

    And that'll be hard to argue against.

    It's interesting, because the raiders are missing a bunch of picks already.

    IMO Palmer isn't worth a 1st, but a 5th 6th or 7th isn't enough.

    A player for player trade perhaps?

    Ya...he definitely shouldn't tarnish his illustrious 7 year career ...Palmer will come back the second Brown quits bein ridiculous ...I don't think he realizes the impact he's making on keeping future FA's the hell away from that franchise because they don't wanna be stuck (although he traded Ocho) ...idk

    Yep. Once a player retires he is done forever. Just ask Favre who retired with the Packers in 08...

    A team would be stupid to even attempt to trade for one.

    They dont have a 2nd 3rd or 4th this year is the thing

    Hope we can work something out, but I doubt it. Despite finally ceding some control of personnel to Marvin, Mike Brown is still in charge.

    And he's an idiot.
