As we all know now, Carson Palmer has asked to be traded from the Bengals.
Palmer is reportedly even willing to retire if his wish isn't granted. Palmer is due to earn $50 million over the next four seasons but none of that is guaranteed. It is hard to imagine a team trading for Palmer without restructuring his contract. Mike Brown says that he won't trade him anyway. However, he could be saying that just to keep what little leverage he has in trade talks.
Assuming the Bengals were open to trading Palmer, what could the they get in return?
Here are some past trades that may help determine his value.
