Palmer To Raiders Makes Sense

  1. I still don’t don’t think it will happen but I don’t want a player from the Raiders. I would want draft picks. Right now the Bengals may not be the best at every position but they have chemistry and are a young team learning together. You bring in a player that has a chip on their shoulder because they were dumped by their old team and they will screw up what we are trying to build. Really the only person I would like to replace is Benson but I also think that Bernard Scott needs those snaps and could potentially replace Benson full time.

    There are 2 huge barriers to this actually getting done. 1. Mike Brown is stubborn. 2. Even if Brown decided to listen to offers, the Raiders don’t have a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th pick in the next draft.

    Maybe, if the Raiders were desperate enough to offer a 1st round pick, would Brown consider budging on his no trade stance. Otherwise, it would be conditional picks in 2013 based on Palmer’s performance, and I’m guessing Brown would just wait until the offseason.

    I think he(Mike Brown) should do it. Everyone is stubborn but there comes a time where you realise its a team game and the trade would benefit the team/organization in the long run. Money, draft picks and sme civil negotiation and we have ourself a deal here.

    I don’t see Brown relenting on this one. Brown likes to prove points, even when they sometimes come at the expense of good sense. In this case, I think the Raiders would have to offer a tremendous package – like a first-round pick – and then Brown would probably need some pressure from others to pull the trigger.

    In the end, I don’t see it happening this season. The good news is Palmer’s trade value should go up slightly with several teams bidding rather than one.
