Carson Palmer Trade Rumors Pointing To Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders notched a victory in Week 6 but they really didn't win anything once news came down that Jason Campbell had suffered a broken collarbone, which could end his 2011 NFL season. The Raiders, 4-2, are still in the thick of the hunt in the AFC West so there's some early speculation that they could be targeting a quarterback before Tuesday's NFL trade deadline.

That quarterback, according to Yahoo! Sports, is the Cincinnati Bengals' Carson Palmer. We all know his story by now: he told the Bengals he would retire if he weren't traded and through six weeks of the season he hasn't shown up at the Bengals facilities.

For their part, the Bengals say they're not trading Palmer and many believe that owner Mike Brown will stick to that regardless of the offer for him.

The Raiders have Kyle Boller and Terrelle Pryor on the roster so if they're serious about competing in the AFC West, they need to strongly consider finding a quarterback. Unfortunately for them, it sounds unlikely that their overtures to Palmer will result in a trade.
