Carson Palmer Traded To Raiders

 After vowing never to play for the Cincinnati Bengals again, former pro bowl quarterback Carson Palmer got his wish today as he was traded to the Oakland Raiders hours before the NFL trade deadline.

Bengals owner Mike Brown finally caved in the 11th hour, sending Palmer to the Raiders for a 2012 first round draft pick, and a conditional first rounder in 2013. If Oakland wins a playoff game this season, the 2013 pick will be a first rounder, if they do not, it will be a second rounder. That’s a steep price to pay for a quarterback whose had one good season in the last 6 years.

Oakland lost starting quarterback Jason Campbell to a collarbone injury in Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Browns. Raider head coach Hue Jackson was the wide receivers coach in Cincinnati from 2004 to 2006. The Bengals won the AFC North in 2005, the best statistical season of Palmer’s career.
