Carson Palmer On Trade Demand: Separation From Bengals Is Best Move For All

Cincinnati Bengals QB Carson Palmer’s agent David Dunn has released a statement on the quarterback’s trade demand. The Bengals posted the statement on their website Monday. Dunn:

Carson met with Bengals owner Mike Brown recently. They both expressed profound disappointment in how the team fared last season, and in how it has generally performed during Carson’s tenure with the team. Because of the lack of success that Carson and the Bengals have experienced together, Carson strongly feels that a separation between him and the Bengals would be in the best interest of both parties.

Carson could not respect the Brown family any more than he does or be more appreciative of what the Browns have done for him and his wife Shaelyn and his family.

Palmer has been Cincy’s quarterback since 2004, with various stretches missed due to injuries throughout that span. During his time the Bengals made the playoffs twice, which is two more times than they did from 1991 to 2003. Palmer’s agent was thus in the rare position of having to undersell the relative success Palmer and the team have had together.
