A Carson Palmer trade means he will start for a new NFL team in 2013, as the Oakland Raiders have plans to trade him to the Arizona Cardinals for draft picks. According to Yahoo Sports on April 1, Oakland will get a late round pick for Palmer.
The relationship between the Raiders and Carson Palmer deteriorated recently when Palmer said he had no faith in the Raiders continued rebuilding process, leading to the Carson Palmer trade.
Oakland has been in a constant state of rebuilding over the past decade and can’t seem to get anything consistent going no matter who was at the helm.
Palmer, who actually retired when he felt Cincinnati was going nowhere fast, and then came out of retirement when Oakland called. He played well for Oakland, but because of continued changes in leadership and no consistent receiving threats, it was worse than he had it at Cincinnati.
Because Palmer wouldn’t restructure his contract, Oakland worked out a Carson Palmer trade with Arizona. While Arizona is not much better than Oakland, at least Palmer will have Larry Fitzgerald, the best received he has ever had the chance to work with.
Oakland has followed this up by reportedly trading for Matt Flynn to be their new starter.
