Mike Brown...a genius? Cincinnati Bengals fans haven't said that about their owner in quite some time but after the Bengals NFL trade deadline deal with the Oakland Raiders that's what some are saying. Brown and the Bengals traded Palmer to the Raiders for a 2012 first round pick and a conditional pick in 2013 that could turn into another first rounder.
In the last few months, it was believed that the best the Bengals could do on a trade for Palmer was a second round pick, or maybe one first round pick. But possibly two first round picks? That's almost unbelievable.
Here's a sampling of the reactions from commenters over at SB Nation's Cincy Jungle:
I'm so happy
Mike Brown you are a genius!!!
im starting to like the new Mike Brown big time trade way to make them overpay !!!!
I think I'm gonna give in...and purchase some game tickets and a new jersey! This is music to my ears, what a steal! I never thought they would get a 1st and conditional 1st round pick! Who dey!
You never hear a Bengals fan say this..."Good Job MIKEY"....Nailed it with this trade,,a smart business man preys on desperation.....Great Job
