Sports Illustrated's Peter King is tweeting today that a rumored trade that would send Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer to Seattle won't happen. Speculation as to Palmer's future has been prevalent since he announced he would retire rather than remain in Cincinnati.
Seattle would be a logical landing spot for Palmer, who has stated he'd prefer playing for a team on the West Coast. The native Californian also won the Heisman Trophy under the tutelage of Seattle coach, Pete Carroll. Seattle is definitely looking for a replacement for Matt Hasselbeck and is one of a few NFL teams with excess cap room that would enable them to go after a player of Palmer's contract stature.
Unless Mike Brown changes course and grants Palmer's wish to be traded, he will be forced to sit out this season. As we all know, Mike Brown changes course about as often as the Ohio River.Tags: Carson Palmer, Cincinnati, Cincinnati Bengals, Football, NFL, Pete Carroll
