    Carson Palmer traded to Raiders

    For 2 first round picks. 1st round for 2012 and conditional 1st round for 2013.

    Oakland Raiders on verge of getting Carson Palmer from Cincinnati Bengals, sources say - ESPN

    Re: Carson Palmer traded to Raiders

    It was stupid for Bengals management to hold on to him just to make a point. Especially if they could get 2 first rounders for him.

    Re: Carson Palmer traded to Raiders

    Jason Campbell can't win. Finally has been playing well and the Raiders are 4-2 - this likely ends his tenure as a Raider.

    Re: Carson Palmer traded to Raiders

    2 first rounders? For Carson Palmer? I thought Al Davis was dead and couldn't make any more awful personnel decisions?

    I don't think anyone was offering that. They had the Raiders by the short-n-curlies on this.

    Re: Carson Palmer traded to Raiders

    Probably a win-win. Carson did fairly well with mediocre talent in Cincy, will be a luxury for him to have McFadden to hand the ball off to.

    Re: Carson Palmer traded to Raiders

    Win-win for the organizations...but Palmer was trying to get himself moved to Seattle. How old is he? Big investment for the Raiders...

    True, I wonder what offers they had for him earlier. I'm sure someone would have offered something for him. Of course they could have low balled them because they knew Palmer refused to play for the Bengals any more.

    Re: Carson Palmer traded to Raiders

    I am glad they traded him. Sitting on a player and forcing him to retire is bush league. Good decision Cinci.

    Re: Carson Palmer traded to Raiders

    Palmer is only 30 years old.

    With that said, Cinci came out great in this. They have their QB of the future it looks like, and now they got 2 first round draft picks? They should be set for the next 10 years.

    Draft a studly offensive line to protect Dalton and give him time to pass to Green

    I can see that...but a player that signs a huge long-term contract and then demands to be traded is bush too!

    Re: Carson Palmer traded to Raiders

    Palmer is 32 years old. He better get them to the AFC championship game or super bowl in the next 4 to 6 years. That is all he has left to play. That is a pretty steep price to pay if he doesn't get them there.

    Re: Carson Palmer traded to Raiders

    Finally glad of my Bengals and their personnel moves. It'll be interesting to see who they draft with those 2 first rounders...They could be smart and trade those picks away New England style and for multiple 2nd/3rd round picks.

    Me and you are both wrong. I guess he's 31. 31 is still fairly young for QB's. Tom Brady is 34. I think Manning is 36. Those guys can still play for another 4-6 years
