One Carson Palmer Trade Rumor Makes A Lot Of Sense

When you talk about QB Carson Palmer and trade rumors, you have to qualify it by saying no one knows what the Cincinnati Bengals will do. Palmer claims he's retiring if he's not traded but, you know what, some smart people around the league think the Bengals could conceivably just not trade him and let him retire.

Crazy, right? But it's possible.

So the latest Carson Palmer trade rumor makes quite a bit of sense, if you ask me -- the Seattle Seahawks. Coached by Pete Carroll, Palmer's former college coach, the Seahawks are without a quarterback right now. Well, they have one -- QB Charlie Whitehurst, who hasn't done much to impress. QB Matt Hasselbeck didn't sign a contract extension before the lockout so his future is uncertain and there are some people that think he's done in Seattle.

Doesn't Palmer is Seattle just make a lot of sense? It would then open the doors for Hasselbeck to hit the free agent market and look at a place like Arizona, where he would be in higher demand. 

It probably won't happen because, frankly, no one can guess what the Bengals will do next. But a scenario that ends with Palmer in Seattle and Hasselbeck on the open market seems to make a lot of sense.
