Jason Cole of Yahoo.com Sports is reporting that former Bengals' wide receiver coach and current head coach of the Oakland Raiders — Hue Jackson — is trying to make a play for Carson Palmer after Raiders' starting quarterback Jason Campbell was sidelined for the rest of the season in today's game against the Cleveland Browns.

Oddly enough, this would seem to be the last but right place for Palmer to go as it would leave the Bengals off of Palmer's raider until 2012 (when Oakland visits Paul Brown Stadium).

Yet with Bengals' owner, President, and de-facto General Manager — Mike Brown — intent on keeping Palmer on the sidelines as punishment for bolting with a front loaded signing bonus (which when you think about it, may be foolish but certainly will send a message to aspiring ship jumpers), it seems highly unlikely that Carson will be donning the silver and black anytime soon.

The wrinkle in this case is Hue Jackson who was a successful coach in Cincinnati and could add a different dynamic to the whole trade talk scenario.  Jackson has been empowered to run the team while the Raiders re-position themselves following Al Davis' death.

It should be interesting to see if anything develops in the next 24 hours....
