Carson Palmer: “I Got 80 Million in the Bank..I Don’t Have to Play” | Robert Littal Presents BlackSportsOnline

Carson Palmer: “I Got 80 Million in the Bank..I Don’t Have to Play”

by Robert Littal | Posted on Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Whenever the labor situation is resolved the Bengals just need to cut their losses and trade Palmer. I don’t think he is any good anymore, so if the Bengals can swindle a 1st round pick out of someone they should do it.

It is ironic the media seems to be going soft on Palmer who is forcing his way out, whereas with other players who demand a trade they are branded selfish, not team players, divas and not leaders.

Wonder why is that?

Dennis Janson of WCPO-TV in Cincinnati reports that Palmer recently told a confidant, “I will never set foot in Paul Brown Stadium again.”

Palmer reportedly added:  “I have $80 million in the bank.  I don’t have to play football for money.  I’ll play it for the love of the game but that would have to be elsewhere.  I’m prepared to live my life.”

I give him credit on his money management if that is the case.  You can say that he has not lived up to the status of the #1 Pick in the draft.  He has be average to good, but #1 picks are suppose to be great.

The Bengals could call his bluff, but who really wants a mediocre quarterback who doesn’t want to be there?

    If he has $80 mill in the bank then why risk serious injury…guess the love for the game must be strong..well good for him

    Soft isn't the word. They pounded on Corey Dillon; they pounded on Chad Ochocinco; and these guys weren't the face of the franchise!! This isn't media protection, it's much more than that. It's media teflon.

    Theyve gone soft because Carson is White and the other players were Black yea I said it!!!

    When the buffoon ocho cinqo asked for a trade, he was crucified, unselfish,and a distraction to the team.This poor excuse of a QB is doing the same and he's getting praised in the media. What a world we live in.
