NFL: Carson Palmer trade to Raiders

Posted by Admin On 10:43 AM

Carson Palmer will make his NFL go back in Oakland after the Raiders agreed a deadline-day trade with the Cincinnati Bengals for the quarterback's services. Palmer, 31, has not played this season after effective the Bengals - with who he was under agreement until 2014 - he wanted a trade or would retire.
Bengals owner Mike Brown refuse to cave in to his insist and Palmer, the first overall pick in the 2003 draft, had since been in limbo. But, as the NFL's trade deadline approached on Tuesday, the Raiders tempted Brown to end his hardline stance by contribution a first-round selection in the 2012 draft and a conditional pick in 2013.
The conditional pick will be in the second round unless the Raiders make the AFC title game either this year or next, in which case it becomes another first rounder. Palmer, a Heisman Trophy winner at USC and two-time Pro Bowler, led the Bengals to AFC North titles in 2005 and 2009 but struggle in 2010, throwing 20 interceptions as Cincinnati finished 4-12.
The Bengals have rebound to a 4-2 start this term under rookie signal caller Andy Dalton, who they took in the second round of the draft, opening the door for a deal to be done. Palmer could go straight into the preliminary line-up for Oakland's week seven fixtures at home to the Kansas City Chiefs as Jason Campbell - the Raiders' initial quarterback for the first six games - is sidelined by a broken collarbone.
