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.

  • @TheSveed I'm sure, but 7 replacements is crazy. They don't do that many in wet/cold climates. Must be reason they are considering turf.

  • What is the deal with this field? 7 planned replacements & considering fake turf next year. In NorCal. Absurd. https://t.co/04LF6uUfj9
