    They are saying that Brown won't give in and trade Palmer. If that doesn't go through there is another team in the NFC with 2 backups.

    Could it be ...

    The Raiders & Bengals are close to a trade that would send Carson Palmer to OAK for a first-rounder in 2012 and a conditional pick in future

    The trade is expected to be completed by deadline. Hue Jackson has a close relationship w Mike Brown and really worked to get Brown to budge

    Carson Palmer to the Raiders now official. Compensation expected to be a 1 in 2012 and a conditional 1 in 2013.

    Trade is for a first-rounder in 2012 then a second rounder in future that can turn into a first-rounder based on his play

    I thought you said "in memorium" not "in disrespect". Davis didn't make trades unless he thought he was getting the upper hand, i.e., Willie Brown, Mike Haynes, Richard Seymour, etc. . . Yeah, there was the Randy Moss fiasco, but you have to consider it was Moss we're talking about. Why are you disrespecting the dead with your jokes?

    And compensatory picks for losing Aso, Gallery and Miller; less what they gained with Boss. So, you know they'll at least get a 3rd rounder (which can't be traded) plus maybe a 4th or so. Besides, historically the Raiders don't do well picking in the 1st, but kick butt in the later rounds. Then again, that was when Davis was calling the shots, so we'll have to see how they do now deep in the draft.

    This has to be some sort of error in reporting. A first for Carson Palmer is an overpay, but possibly two firsts is a massive, what-the-****-are-you-thinking-why-are-you-doing-this-to-your-franchise-jesus-christ overpay. I mean, they probably could've talked the Eagles out of Vince Young for far less compensation.

    Hate to lose 1st rounders that could be used on players like JaBustus . . . oh, wait a minute. . . .

    Anyway, the Raiders have a very, very, young and talented team, so they should be fine without a few high draft picks over the next couple years. I mean, Richard Seymour, G Cooper Carlise and RT Khalif Barnes, are really the only guys that will likely need to be replaced over the next couple years.

    This is a really not-so-smart way of doing things for a GM. Not having draft picks is going to hurt your team regardless of who was picked in previous first rounds and on.

    I know Asomugha was a first round draft pick so it's not all bad. And with how bad of a draft history the Texans have with first rounders (Carr, T. Johnson, Babin, Okoye, Jackson) I'd still be pissed if I had to give up a first for the likes of a guy like Carson Palmer. Palmer hasn't been good since what, 2007?

    EDIT: Jay Glazer: Trade is for a first-rounder in 2012 then a second rounder in future that can turn into a first-rounder based on his play

    This is worse than the Roy Williams deal.

    Win-Win

    Raiders are trying to get to the Big Dance and needed a QB now that Campbell is down. Hue Jackson had worked with Palmer for years and know exactly what he is getting and how he will work in the Raiders' offense. Bengals have their QB of the future, and needed some picks to help him out down the road. Win-Win

    You gave up a first round draft pick, and at least a second round draft pick the year after that could become a first again, to a team that you will probably be battling a lot in the future, for a guy who has been injured, sat out this whole season (the season on which you are going to rely on him probably the most) and hasn't really been that good since like 2007 2008ish. It's a bad deal.
