I say trade him to the Titans for VY, that would be the smartest thing to do IMO:handshake:

He would be a very good fit in Arizona.

his arm is shot and his accuracy has dropped off big time, along with his confidence.

I don't blame him as I would hate to have to listen to TO & Chad constantly.

Seattle or Arizona would both be good fits. I wouldn't want to see him go to the Titans as he would probably turn them into a winner.

Great idea, blow up the team this year and tank to win the Andrew luck sweepstakes next year! I bet without Palmer, 85 and TO they could lose more games than the Bills, Broncos or Panthers.

Palmer wants to leave mainly because of their OC, Bob Bratkowski. He's pretty much given the team an ultimatum, him or Bratkowski. I remember Ocho calling out Brat a year or two ago...and with the way the Bengals have been performing...I can't blame either one of them for wanting to get rid of the guy.

I can see him landing in either Arizona, SF, Tenn, or Oakland.

Questionable if any of those guys are even there next year. Palmer wants out, TO is a FA(iirc and if so, unlikely they bring him back), and I believe there is an option on Ochocinco's contract. Benson also a FA

Who would want Palmer, much less his contract? Al Davis, maybe. Palmer is a statue and hasn't been the same since his elbow injury in 2008. His retirement would be a favor to the Bengals, who don't seem to realize that Palmer is toast.

I still think he has something left in him. While I don't think he'll have a Kurt Warner type resurgence and take a team all the way to the SB...I think he would be able to take an average team into the playoffs. Not sure I would want him in Oakland though, I'd like to see what Campbell has for another year.

Palmer had a good couple of years, but has been bad since. Not really sure why anyone would want him.

Is she tired of facing Ray Lewis, James Harrison and Troy Polamalu twice a year? Then maybe she should simply retire.

There was a report last week Marvin met with Childress for dinner and football talk. Maybe he's already planning to whack Bratkowski? Although, it seems kinda weird that they met while the dude was still employed

They've already picked up Chad's option. He'd have to be traded.

Mike Brown: "We are not trading Carson." Says Palmer requested trade last week and Brown said 'No.' Also, Childress not coming to #Bengals (http://twitter.com/search?q=%23Bengals).

The Bills could use a QB :thinking:

I think Carson still has it in him, he just needs a new environment and a good offensive line around him like any QB in the league.

How do you figure that? Why does everyone, including the media, overlook what Fitzpatrick did for BUF this year? I actually rooted for them because I knew Fitz was out there goin to work with his lumberjack beard lol

Waiting for the Jessee Jacksons "runaway slave" comments about Bengals owner Mike Brown.

Wait, that only works when the owner is white, and the athlete is black? My bad.

He is also threatening retirement. We suck, but they are a train wreck. Get ready to be completely irrelevant once they lose Ochopsyco, TO, Casrson Palmer and co.

I get what you are saying. I think he had a fine season too. But do you consider him a franchise QB? I can see Chan Gailey giving Fitz the reigns next season while they groom their franchise QB of the future. CAM NEWTON! jk I have no idea which QB they would take.

I think I would build around Fitz. He almost beat the Ravens and a lot of other teams. Maybe BUF was the only other team more "snake-bitten" than HOU. At least give him another year to fizzle out or improve even more

He is one of two sons by Paul Brown who mated with Lucifer. His mother attempted to coat hanger abort him but his love of money made him rage punch through his mothers stomach. The aliens movie was then made in his example

pwned on teh intrawebz.....i think he's got enough bad press hahaha
