Several of you have pointed us to a report that not-yet-officially-retired Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer was spotted on Saturday with agent David Dunn at Paul Brown Stadium. Per CincyJungle.com, the information comes from the protected Twitter page of WLW producer James Bedingfield.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, it’s not true. Neither Palmer nor Dunn are in Cincinnati.
Though the failure of Palmer to file retirement papers has fueled speculation that he may show up soon and collect what would become a guaranteed salary of $11.5 million, the Bengals have bigger fish to fry than to meet with Palmer and Dunn on Saturday. The powers-that-be are in the process of cutting the roster to 53 — and also scouring the other cuts that are made by other teams in the hopes of finding some new players.
