Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer has been speaking directly to owner Mike Brown with the trading deadline approaching, but the conversations haven’t helped matters.
Mike Lombardi of NFL.com reports that the conversations have been “fruitless.” The two sides reportedly only get “further and further apart” each time.
We’re not sure how much further apart you can get than telling Palmer that he’s not going to be traded. Palmer’s stance this season never made a lot of sense to us.
It looks even more odd now that Palmer is going to miss an entire season during what should still be the prime of his career.
