A Study in Moot Points

ESPN.com’s James Walker looks at what Carson Palmer might be worth on the trading market. Walker estimates he’s worth about a second-rounder. But the funny thing is, I still don’t see Mike Brown trading Palmer this year (even if Carson already sold his house).

Perhaps Palmer will follow through on his retirement threat, but I see no point in letting him get precisely what he wants. It sets a bad precedent on a team that often is filled with unhappy players. (And fans for that matter).

Thus, the message is clear. Players and fans alike, we’re all in this together. For better or for worse.

And it’s often worse.
