    ESPN Report - Carson wants to be traded

    Just watching NFL Gameday - they said Carson Palmer has said he wants to be traded or he will retire.

    I like Carson even more now than before. Good for him.

    Let him retire and forfeit the $16 million on his contract.

    I don't like Bengals management, but Carson has not exactly proven to be part of the solution either. If he's willing to give up that much money out of pure stubbornness, I kind of hope the Bengals dare him to do it.

    Trade him. They can use the draft picks.

    If some team offers a really good deal, then make the trade, but I wouldn't be shopping him around. I question his value to other teams, especially with this report going public, but if Mikey Boy gets an offer above and beyond what he thinks Carson is worth, then maybe do it, but it would have to be a very good deal. Carson is QB, not GM; he wanted TO and got it, and look what happened.

    I'd absolutely call his bluff. He thinks he can go giving ultimatums after the way he's played the past two seasons? Simply laughable.

    I used to try and go easy on him performance wise since I generally thought he was a good guy. No reason to hold back now. He's right there with Ochocinco.

    So you want an overpaid, under performing, disgruntled Palmer as yor QB.

    Maybe he watched the press conference too.

    There can be no player trades during or before the draft is there is no CBA. They can't grant Carson's wish even if they wanted to

    I'd force him to retire and call his bluff. He's pulling a Marvin here, talking a big game but nothing to back it up.

    Carson is elite in his own mind, that is about it.

    I guess he has had enough of Marvin and Bob?

    From 2008:

    Asked if he thought the same coaching staff could turn it from being stale, Palmer said, “I don’t think so,” but he also said he doesn’t know if Lewis will make those changes.

    “We need a lot of changes,” said Palmer, who did respond to a question about discipline, a subject he has often discussed.

    “When you look at the most successful teams in this league, they’re very disciplined,” Palmer said. “And we’re obviously not one of the most successful teams. I don’t think we’re the most disciplined team and that’s definitely an area we need to improve on.”
    If I remember correctly the only changes we saw was on defense.

    That does make it sound like he's fed up with the offense and I agree with him that discipline is a primary problem. I'm wondering if he had visions of Norm Chow taking over for Bratkowski. It just so happens that this comes out less than a day after Norm Chow is announced as Utah's new OC

    Good for Carson! I have doubts that he really wants to be traded but someone needs to give Mikey a 'trout slap' and get his attention a la 'Mike, you're a crappy owner, have no business playing GM like this were a board game and I'm tired of getting beat and beat up every game. This ain't fantasy football and you suck at that too!'

    I'm with Reds Reporter---I think Carson thought that there would at least be a change at Offensive Coordinator and maybe even Head Coach. Since Mikey can't 'man up' and make the needed changes then I don't blame Carson for being P.O.'d for donating his career and his body for a jack wagon like that.

    I'm not the biggest Carson fan (overall not that good and wayyyy overpriced), but he's finally seen the man behind the curtain and how he operates this mom and pop of a franchise and realizes it's not worth anymore of his time. Another career casualty Mikey can put up on his chalkboard.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
