Quote
Now that the Raiders have reeled in Matt Flynn and soon will unload Carson Palmer, the question becomes where will Palmer go?

Many think it will be with the Cardinals, for a mid-round pick and a reduced contract.

Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, those who know Palmer believe he wanted to land in Tampa, as the backup (and potential replacement) for Josh Freeman.  “Doesn’t look that way now,” Schefter observes.

But Palmer still holds the cards.  If he refuses to reduce his base salary from $13 million, he’ll eventually get cut, because no one will trade for him.  Then, Palmer can sign with whoever he wants to sign with.

Of course, Palmer possibly is tapping the brakes because he realizes that, eventually, he’ll be criticized heavily for forcing his way out of two cities in less than two years.  But if he chooses to put the pedal to the metal, he could still be wearing pewter, if the Bucs want him.

Regardless, Palmer will play for a new team in 2013.  Whether it’s the Buccaneers or the Cardinals, his team will be facing a very stiff challenge in its division.

Tweet from Adam Schefter just a few minutes ago "Those who know soon-to-be Raiders QB Carson Palmer believe he was hoping to wind up in Tampa Bay with the Bucs.  Doesnt look that way now."

Previous tweet "Oakland also trying to finalize a trade that would send Carson Palmer to Arizona for one late pick.  Palmer would restructure contact in AZ."

Just say NO to Bridgewater at 7...very small hands \\\\\\\"smell like cabbage.\\\\\\\"

Im sure he did. Could win a starting job. Has a lot of weapons. No in state tax. Im sure he would have loved to play here. AZ has an awful Oline. He will get killed if he plays there. Im hoping we get him.

Can you blame him?  Loads of offensive talent with a starting qB in his make-or-break year.

It’s going to look to some people like a different play every time we use it, but pretty soon they’ll be able to recognize it....by watching the official for the first-down signal.   -Vincent T. Lombardi

If the Bucs signed Palmer, and they went into training camp with Freeman and Palmer on equal footing, Palmer would beat out Freeman for the starting job.

I say bring him in and let them battle it out. Would be good for the team.

Still could happen. According to reports, Arizona would be getting Palmer for "dirt cheap". If we could get him for a late 2014 conditional pick I don't see why we couldn't pull it off. I'd take Palmer over a rookie from this class, or Orlovsky any day.

And I don't see Palmer playing hard ball as a bad thing. Look at his history - Bengals, Raiders, possibly Arizona. That's a rough hand.

People would say adding Bucs to that list doesn't really improve it, but with our offense it surely does.

Palmer could throw for over 5000 yards with VJax and MWill at receiver and Doug Martin at RB.

A. He would have no chance of beating Freeman
B. You goober fans can't handle having a decent backup because you'll boo Freeman off the field the first time we punt

Just give it up...

@JasonLaCanfora:
I'm hearing Carson Palmer, whose contract called for $13M in Oakland, will end up making $8M with the Cardinals

...$8mil?? He won't be throwing any fits.  He is/will be a Cardinal.

Yes, he might.  But if it causes Josh to mature and improve his game,  then mission accomplished.

Improve his TD/INT ratio while in playoff contention and before EVERYTHING broke down around him from 26/9 to what, 35/5?








Other wise he's gone. Or something like that.
