Grading Carson Palmer Trade to Arizona Cardinals

The quarterback carousel that has been the month of April in the NFL kept on spinning Tuesday.

After a late "snag" (via NFL.com) put the deal in jeopardy, the Oakland Raiders and Arizona Cardinals agreed to terms on a deal that will send quarterback Carson Palmer from the Bay Area to the desert.

The Raiders all but gave the 33-year-old Palmer away in what was essentially a salary dump after the team acquired Matt Flynn on Monday.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (via colleague Gregg Rosenthal), Oakland will receive a sixth-round pick, as well as a conditional seventh-round draft pick if Palmer starts at least 13 games for the Cardinals in 2013. In exchange, Palmer and Oakland's seventh-round pick head south.

Let's explore what this trade means for the Cardinals moving forward.
