The Bengals won't Move Palmer
Bengals owner Mike Brown insist he won't trade Carson Palmer. Palmer who is tenured for four more years, wants out of Cincinnati, a team who has only had 2 winning seasons in the last 20 seasons.
According to Brown he won't trade Palmer because he see's it as a matter of Principle. He said 'Carson signed a contract. He made a commitment. He gave his word. We relied on his word. We relied on his commitment. We expected him to perform here. He's going to walk away from his commitment. We aren't going to reward him for doing it."
This is a prime examole of why the Bengals are in a horrible place as a franchise. Palmer could bring in draft pics, draft pics that you in return build towards your future. The Bengals are so far under the salary cap they can afford to throw some big money at any of the Quarterbacks out there. If the allow Palmer to just retire on a matter of 'principle' the franchise can expect another 5 years of loosing seasons. They are in no place to base decisions like this on principle! But that is why the are the Worst Franchise in all of sports!
