The longest work stoppage in NFL history is over, and it's time once again to play some football. The next few days are sure to be exciting for both the players and fans. But it won’t be exciting for all players, especially Carson Palmer.
Palmer has stood his ground in demanding a trade out of Cincinnati, or else he will retire. Mike Brown, the Bengals general manager, has made his own stand on the issue, saying he will not trade his disgruntled franchise quarterback. The lockout is over, and so is Palmer’s playing career.
With the way, it has been going so far, you can guarantee that Mike Brown is serious when he says he refuses to trade his franchise quarterback Carson Palmer.
It’s a shame because Palmer is a guy that I always rooted for, wanted badly to see him succeed and do it in Cincinnati.
But it isn’t always happy endings, and Palmer’s career is going to end.
