Carson Palmer Trade Shows the Time Is Now for Oakland Raiders

Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson's mantra for 2011 is "The time is now!" Jackson is really making believers out of Raider Nation now as he has traded for Carson Palmer.

According to Jason LaCanfora on NFL Network, the Raiders are reportedly giving up a 2012 first-round pick and  a 2013 second-round pick that could turn turn into a first-round pick for Palmer. The move is worth the picks 10 times over as the Raiders are loaded with young talent already.

I didn't see this one coming as Cincinnati Bengals owner Mike Brown usually doesn't give in to trade demands. But I guess a first-round pick, maybe two, is too much to refuse for a guy that would rather retire than play for you.
