Carson Palmer In Oakland For Physical After Being Traded By Bengals

The eagle has landed, or the former Bengal at least, in Oakland. Quarterback Carson Palmer arrived in the Bay Area on Tuesday for a physical with the Raiders. Once he clears the physical, the paperwork can be filed with the NFL and Palmer can officially be a Raider. Chris Mortensen of ESPN reported the news via Twitter:

Physicals are just one of the formalities involved with player acquisitions in the NFL. Potential draft picks are thoroughly evaluated, as are possible free agent additions and trade targets. Palmer has been demanding a trade for some time, and has reportedly continued with a conditioning program appropriate for an NFL quarterback.

Last month it was reported on NBC Sports Talk that Palmer was working out with former NFL quarterback Ken O’Brien.

The next question to be answered is when the Raiders will start Palmer. They have a home game with the Chiefs on Sunday prior to a week 8 bye.
