Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer wants out of Cincinnati, according to Chris Mortensen on ESPN. Palmer wants out by either being released or via a trade and has threatened to retire if he doesn't get released or dealt. Palmer used to be considered one of the young emerging QB's and many felt he was a Top 5 quarterback in the league. Palmer however has been struck with injuries since tearing his ACL against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the playoffs a few seasons ago. I have no idea what it would take to get Palmer in a trade, but the Jaguars do have an extra fourth round pick obtained from the Saints during last year's draft.
Until a new CBA is in place however, players cannot be traded. Hypothetically speaking, if one is in place come draft time, would you favor the Jaguars giving up a 3rd or 4th round pick for Carson Palmer?
Here's what Palmer has done since his injury in 2008. Obviously, the stats have not translated to wins for Palmer and the Bengals.
