Carson Palmer a Raider

Jay Glazer reports the Raiders have traded for Cincinnati Bengals Quarterback Carson Palmer.

The Raiders send a 2012 first round draft pick and a conditional first round draft pick in 2013. The pick in 2013 converts to second round pick if the Raiders don’t win a playoff game.

The price was steep, but the move is the correct one. The Raiders playoff hopes were given a major blow when Jason Campbell went down and they had to move quickly.

  • Kind of crazy how long McCown has been able to stick around as a backup...and now a starter at 35 and 36.
