For Carson Palmer, Raiders will compensate Bengals with their first-round choice in 2012 draft and their second-round choice in 2013 draft.
Bengals release states clearly that the trade is a first round pick in 2011 and a 2nd rounder in 2013. No mention of conditions for '13
still too much.
I'm willing to bet that the Bengals owner wasn't listening to any offers at all and Oakland knew it was going to take a ridiculous offer for them to even listen. It's a HUGE gamble, and not one I would have agreed upon as a fan had the 49ers made this deal, but Oakland has been decent in past years and with the strong running game they have right now, Carson Palmer could really be the answer for the Raiders, I would certainly say he's better than any other option they had at QB.
But the Raiders can still go f**k themselves as far as I'm concerned, just my 2 cents
An interesting note here is that Hue Jackson was OC in Cinci from 2004-2006. That was when Palmer was at the top of his game. After 2006 is when he started to decline, if that is the case, maybe connecting back with Hue Jackson will be good for him.
I still think the 1st (2012) and 2nd or 1st (2013) is too much but I can see why they made the move.
