Carson Palmer tells confidant he's done with Bengals

There have been signs early in the offseason that Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer doesn't want to return to the team for a ninth season, starting with his decision to put his Cincinnati-area house up for sale.

The latest salvo comes from WCPO-TV, which reports Palmer telling friends that his plan is to "never set foot in Paul Brown Stadium again."

Carson Palmer says he will retire rather than play for the Bengals again. (AP Photo)Palmer went on to say how his financial security -- he says he has $80 million in the bank -- gives him leverage to force a trade because he doesn't have to play football and simply could make good on his threat to retire if not traded.

The Bengals already are acting as if Palmer won't be back. Coach Marvin Lewis, new offensive coordinator Jay Gruden and owner/G.M. Mike Brown spent many of their 15-minute interview slots at the NFL Scouting Combine talking to quarterbacks. The team is expected to seriously consider drafting Auburn's Cam Newton or Missouri's Blaine Gabbert with the fourth-overall pick April 28.

Palmer is under contract with Cincinnati through 2014, but team officials aren't allowed to trade him until after the CBA impasse is solved.

I wonder how all this will affect his brother in that locker room?

we need to pick him up! And Matt Leinart, that way Cassel knows he's the fucking man and can be like "WHO'S STARTING NOW, BITCHES?"

it would boost his confidence dramatically and he will lead us to the promise land.

This needs to happen.

Only if it doesn't cost much beyond sending them Vrabel and no picks.

Point Taken.

When someone is saying I got enough cash sitting in the bank ( good for him btw) I can just retire and tell the NFL to kiss my butt, you gotta question his mentaility, guts and heart when the going gets tough.

Is he really gonna go out there and put it all on the line in week 17 in the frigid cold for the chance to play more cold weather games to advance in the playoffs?

Ya but he is saying that because he doesn't like playing for the bengals. He wants to enjoy playing.
