Carson Palmer Traded To Raiders
Former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer has been traded to the Oakland Raiders for two first-round picks.
The Oakland Raiders have acquired quarterback Carson Palmer from the Cincinnati Bengals for a 2012 1st-round pick and a conditional 2013 1st-round pick. If the Raiders win a playoff game this season, the Bengals will receiver the Raiders 1st-round pick in 2013. If the Raiders do not win a playoff game this season, the Bengals will receive the Raiders 2nd-round pick in 2013.
The Raiders needed a replacement after quarterback Jason Campbell broke his collarbone in a 24-17 win against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Carson Palmer hasn't seen any action for the Bengals this season. Owner Mike Brown was unwilling to appease Palmer's demand of being traded before the season began. Carson Palmer was the first overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft. He has passed for 22,694 yards while throwing 154 touchdowns and 100 interceptions.
