While the NFL world gets the champagne ready, a number of players and coaches are enjoying what should be their last days of freedom at the American Century Celebrity Golf tournament in Lake Tahoe.
One of those players, Carson Palmer, has been in the news quite a bit this offseason without saying a word. He’s going to keep it that way.
Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer went all the way to Nevada to track down Palmer, but the former No.1 overall pick isn’t talking. Palmer said he is “laying low” and didn’t want to discuss his situation. Palmer’s agent David Dunn was also mum. Even his friends like Matt Cassel are staying quiet.
“Carson seems like he always does during this time of the year,” Cassel said.
It looks very possible that Palmer will miss the 2011 season. We have to believe that some other solution is preferable than a guy missing a season of his career while the Bengals move on without him.
