Cardinals Trade With Oakland For QB Carson Palmer

Carson Palmer

The Cardinals have another QB on the roster, as today the team made a move with the Raiders for the services of Carson Palmer.

Arizona cut Kevin Kolb, who signed with the Bills over the weekend, and have Drew Stanton on the roster as well. They also cutt quarterback John Skelton, who went 8-9 in 17 starts over the past three seasons on Monday.

Seattle traded QB Matt Flynn to the Raiders, setting them up with their QB for the 2013 season, which is the reason why Palmer became available on the trade market.

The move according to Adam Schefter is for a conditional 7th-round pick in 2014 if Palmer starts 13 games this upcoming season.

Palmer has shown eroding skills the past couple of seasons, but that didn’t stop the Cards from coming to terms with the former Bengals QB on a new contract.

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic is reporting it’s a two-year deal worth $16 million with $10 million guaranteed.

Seems like it’s got disaster written all over it, and it would be a shock if Palmer plays anywhere near up to the size of the deal. Friday Palmer turned down $13 million to $10 million to remain with the Raiders, a sign of how bad he wanted out of Oakland.
