If Kurt Warner really wants to see Carson Palmer in an Arizona Cardinals uniform, he’ll probably have to wait awhile.
According to ESPN Analyst John Clayton, who was a guest on the Kevin Calabro Show on 710 ESPN Seattle, the Cincinnati Bengals won’t be putting Palmer on the market this offseason.
“No way Carson Palmer is available this year,” he told the host. “Mike (Brown) is as stubborn a guy as there can be. When he makes a decision that he’s not going to trade a guy, he’s not going to trade a guy… Carson Palmer is not going to be traded this year. He’ll be traded next year.”
Can we finally cross one quarterback of the Cardinals’ list? Clayton seems to think so but with the Bengals drafting of Andy Dalton it’s tough to tell exactly what Brown and the team are really thinking. Although, it would be impressive if they were spiteful enough to call Palmer’s bluff and make him sit out an entire season.
