Carson Palmer Trade Details: Conditional Pick Based On Raiders Winning Playoff Game

The details of the Carson Palmer trade that will send the quarterback to the Raiders from the Bengals are coming to light. The Raiders will surrender a 2012 first-round pick and a conditional pick in 2013, a second-round pick that would turn into a first-rounder if the Raiders win a playoff game.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported the conditions of the second pick via Twitter. Right now, the Raiders are 4-2 and in second place (behind San Diego) in the AFC West.

Instant Reactions: The Palmer trade has drawn excitement from Bengals fans and more mixed (and negative) emotions from Raider Nation.

Hm I wonder if these new details will make Raiders fan more or less enthused ...

Here's some more background on what led to the deal from Cincy Jungle:

Carson Palmer reportedly demanded a trade during the league's Conference Championship weekend with ESPN NFL Insider reporting at the time that Palmer was threatening to use the "retirement card." Palmer has said a single word about the demand, but the team took the demand serious enough to draft TCU quarterback Andy Dalton in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft. Throughout the entire process, Mike Brown has stood firm that he will not trade Palmer, standing behind his principles that players shouldn't demand their way out of a contract.
