    I'm trying to do the math on this one... Carson's current deal lets him earn up to $118m, so that's a lot of frugality... but damn, Carson should be teaching personal finances to pro athletes.

    Probably not the type of quote the NFLPA wants from their members right now.

    Carson also had endorsement deals early on in his career when everyone thought he was going to be the next Manning. However the reports about his personal life is that he lives relatively modest for someone with his bankroll and he's more of a family man. Which is why I have no doubt in my mind that he'll file for his retirement papers if the Bengals don't trade him. It'll be another Jake Plummer move.

    If I had to play with Chad Johnson my entire career and then the team's plan to fix problems was to bring in Terrell Owens (and all of the thugs they've signed), I'd pull a trade or retire move also. Especially if I've already sustained the type of injuries Carson has.

    I really hope palmer sticks with this to the draft so CIN may draft a QB thats 1 less DEF player taken in the top ten which helps the Texans

    I like Palmer. Always have. It's a shame that his shoulder injury hindered his play quite a bit, because he threw a damn nice ball early on in his career.

    I don't blame him one bit though. The Bengals organization is a circus and always will be as long as Mike Brown is in charge.

    I've been on the fence with this situation. I think both parties have made a stand based on their principles and I respect that greatly. I would be somewhat disappointed if Palmer showed up and played this season. I would understand it, though.
