Carson Palmer Will Retire, Bengals Say

The Cincinnati Bengals haven't changed their tune -- at least publicly -- when it comes to QB Carson Palmer, who has said he'll retire if he's not traded by the Bengals. The Bengals stance has been that they won't trade him.

So this quote from Bengals owner Mike Brown this week shouldn't come as much of a surprise:

"He has retired. I wish him well. If he is going to walk away from his commitment, we're not going to reward it."

That's what the Bengals have been saying all along.

What will be interesting is when some team undoubtedly contacts (or has already contacted) the Bengals offering up draft picks for him. They're willing to play hardball but it'd be tough to turn down, say, a second round pick for Palmer. 

For now, though, the Bengals aren't budging. Check out Cincy Jungle to see if they ever will.
