Carson Palmer has asked the Cincinnati Bengals to trade him following an ugly 4-12 season, according to a report published today.
The former Heisman Trophy winner and number one overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft has had some serious ups and downs during his time in Cincinnati.
He led the Bengals to the playoffs in 2005 in just his second year as a starter but suffered a brutal knee injury during the Bengals' first-round game. He also missed most of the 2008 season as he dealt with an elbow injury.
His results have been largely mixed as a passer. He put up some big passing years early in his career, and guided the Bengals back to the playoffs in 2009, but 2010 was an ugly year for both Palmer and Cincinnati.
Now, as the Bengals look to regroup and rebuild, Palmer has demanded to be moved. There are a number of teams out there looking for quarterbacks, be it through trades, free agency or the draft. So with that in mind, what are the 10 most likely landing spots for the two-time Pro Bowler?
Teams may be scared off by his ugly performances in 2010, but it's likely someone will take the chance on trading for a quarterback like Palmer. I'll go over the 10 teams most likely to give the Bengals a call about their signal-caller.
