As everyone knew from day 1 the Bengals would not be willing to trade Carson Palmer and loose face as a franchise. I think they made a mistake not trading the cancer Ocho-Stinko we they could have gotten more than a 1st, Now its bone head mistake letting Palmer go for free (does have to sit out a season, but could prolong career by recharging body imo).

If he sits out a season, he doesn't get credited his year.

Mike Brown should have his ownership revoked. He is bad for the league and bad for the Bungle fans.

I wonder if he'd be interested in Perrish Cox. Maybe there's a way Brown could use the guy to count against the hard cap, but then suspend him w/o pay for the maximum number of games.

Mike Brown's stubbornness will hurt the team again.

I know he is a man of principle and is sticking to his guns, but Carlson Palmer does the team no good under this scenario.

In the best interest of the team, he should trade him for some high draft picks. Right now, he has value to the team, something Mike Brown needs to take advantage of.

Carson Palmer has given the Bengals a lot of good years....if he wants out, Mike Brown should make it happen (only if he gets fair market value for Palmer).

I know Mike Brown wants to make his point.

Too bad the point being made is that players will not want to play for the Bengals even more after this.

That play, specifically Gus Johnson's call of that play, was one of my 10 favorite Broncos moments of all time.

I was watching that game with one of my obnoxious buddies who is a huge Bengals fan.

He was already talking smack and I thought the game was over.

The look on his smug face was priceless.

I said "Suck it, bitch!" and laughed for about 10 minutes straight.

After the season Palmer had last year, I'd argue his value to the team is significantly higher than his value in a trade.

Ochocinco and Palmer were both rumored to be wanting out at one point. If you get rid of both of them, who puts people in the stands? If you let them both go, how long until others want to get out of the steaming pile that is Cincinnati?

I'm sure if it could be done and not cause the team too many problems, they'd cater to Palmer. They just don't have that as a possibility right now. They have to bank their hopes on someone and Palmer is still it.

Carson Palmer isn't playing for the Bengals again....period.

Nothing is worth nothing and that's what the Bengals will get if they keep him.

I'd ship him off for some draft picks and move on.

I'm 100% sure Carson Palmer will never play for the Bengals again.

The Bengals drafted Andy Dalton to replace him.

Time to move on.

I was under impression by him retiring it would void the contract and the next year he could reinstate and become a FA. Wasn't that what Favre was going to do b4 being traded to Jets?

Nope, he was going to show up and force them to pay his huge contract to be Rodgers' backup and a massive distraction.

Contracts go on hold when someone retires. The Jets released him from his contract so he could go to Minny or they'd have had him back.

I personally think Palmer's value is only a 4th or so until he can show he's back to old form. Is it worth a 4th to let your players walk all over the organization? Would it be worth a 4th to give up hope that you can force him to come back and play for you? Would it be worth a 4th to face the ignorant fans that gloss over most and then see that the team sucks next year and blame it on the team trading Palmer when the fan is actually not considering the whole scenario?

They really don't win either way and it seems a mid-late round draft pick isn't worth it to cave to a player taking such an aggressive stand against the team.

Hence WHY I'm a Broncos fan and have been since I was 9 years old.

As someone who has lived their whole life in Cincinnati I say the Bengals should do this town a solid fav and move to L.A. heheh..

The only thing with picking on the Bengals is it's sorta like picking on the handicapped kid in school...

there's almost nothing worse than being sentenced to multiple years in a Bengals uniform.

They should be men, admit that they have run a garbage franchise, and trade Palmer.

you know Shanahan is dying for a QB like that.

So if someone offers the Bungles like 10 first round picks, and you're Mike Brown, do you take the offer?

If Palmer sits out he gets "credit" because he isn't paid. You can retire through your contract.

As I said in another thread, Palmer is in a position to really screw the Bengals. The new cap rules mandate spending at least 90% of your cap every year. Retiring would remove his salary from the Bengals cap....un-retiring right after the season starts and the cap is set would add his salary back onto the books, potentially forcing some hard releases (or a trade of Palmer) That's what I'd do if I were him.
