ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting that Carson Palmer is prepared to ask the Cincinnati Bengals for a trade. Mortensen mentions that Palmer wants out of Cincinnati enough that he’s willing to threaten retirement if they aren’t willing to trade him.
It was suggested a few weeks back that the Bengals could end up releasing Palmer because of the amount of money that he is due to make. Cincinnati wasn’t willing to move on from Palmer as their starter but this news could end up forcing their hand in the situation.
Mortensens that the Cardinals, 49ers and Seahawks could all be options.
