The potential lockout makes this situation pretty odd in that no trades can happen.
But if the labor dispute gets solved in a timely fashion, I wonder how in the world the Bengals can think about going into the next season with Carson Palmer when he has made it hugely and abundantly clear he wants nothing to do with the Bengals? I mean, are they going to get a whip out and flog him onto the field? This is just a no-win situation for the Bengals.
The guy doesn't want to be here. Get him out and move on.
