NFL Trade Talk: Cincinnati Bengals Quarterback Carson Palmer Will Not Be Traded

Cincinnati Bengals Owner Mike Brown has a reputation for being cheap and stubborn.  He is doing an excellent job of living up to that reputation. Brown reiterated today he would not trade quarterback Carson Palmer who has stated he would retire before playing again for the Bengals.

 "I'm not expecting him to be back," said Brown via the Cincinnati Enquirer. "Carson signed a contract, he made a commitment. He gave us his word. We relied on his word and his commitment. We expected him to perform here. If he is going to walk away from his commitment we aren't going to reward him for doing it."

Palmer was the Bengals #1 overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft. 

He led the Bengals to their only two playoff appearances since 1991. 

While Palmer has been solid he hasn't lived up to the hype he generated early in his career. His best season in the NFL was his second season when he threw 32 touchdowns. 

The Arizona Cardinals were able to revitalize one veteran's career with Kurt Warner, it doesn't sound like they will get the opportunity to do the same for Carson Palmer.
