more value for us
Raiders already have a young prospect qb. Additionally, Carson Palmer is a starting QB. Other than his phillip rivers-esque ability to throw pick sixes late in games, he's probably better than Alex Smith in most categories.
Palmer being released gives teams another option to trading up to draft a QB.
