The Bengals have gotten multiple calls about Carson Palmer's availability and have told whoever is calling that they are not dealing him, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Nothing new here, just more of Bengals' owner Mike Brown acting stubborn. Schefter notes that a few years ago, the Redskins offered two first-round picks for a disgruntled Chad Ochocinco and the Bengals turned it down. Last week, they traded a quieter Ocho to New England for a fifth- and sixth-round pick. Perhaps Palmer will get the trade he desires next offseason. It's not happening now.
Carson played like shit last year, i mean so completely awful sometimes its amazing it was the same QB from earlier in his career that looked like a future pro bowler. i don't get why Mike Brown is holding him hostage when he can get value for him, and i'd assume free up money. it just seems extremely personal in what he's doing by refusing to release/trade him, and Carson seems dead set on not playing for the Bengals again.
I read that too recently. Ohio better start holding their lame ass front office people to account for their booty ass teams..
stop ranting at the players and get after the owners.. the owners are the constant in all the decades of losing
If you lived in Cincinnati, you'd know that we do. We get mad when players under perform (as any fan would) but we also hold the ownership responsible as it has been terrible. A lot of us loathe Mike Brown with a passion
The problem I see with Mike Brown isn't that he lacks a desire to win. It's that he wants to do it HIS way, and he will NOT change. He is an incredibly stubborn owner, and he will put his personal vendettas ahead of what is good for the team.
Despite all the years of losing, and no playoff wins since 1991, Bengals fans have, by in large, continued to fill the stadium. This year, besides the Steelers game, I could forsee a scenerio where all the other games are blacked out locally. That could get his attention, but then again, maybe not.
Well, they have yet to give Colt a legitimate target on offense. At least the Rams grabbed Mike Sims-Walker for Bradford.
Not so fast.
From reports I'm hearing, Greg Little has looked really good in training camp thus far. It has been said that Joe Haden is the only corner that has been able to hold him in check.
Remember... He may have been one of the most coveted receivers in this past draft if not for having to sit out an entire year at UNC.
Also, the Browns aren't close enough to being a complete team for Holmgren/Heckert to justify going out and signing some high-priced FA receivers. They are building from the ground-up. That is usually the last piece to the contender puzzle.
