Bengals Want Carson Back (Cincinnati.com)


The Bengals met with quarterback Carson Palmer immediately before training camp began, and reached out to his representatives again last week, sources confirmed to The Enquirer.

ESPN reported Thursday that Palmer met with Brown at Paul Brown Stadium. A league source told The Enquirer the meeting took place during the week of July 25, when the lockout ended, but before the team reported to camp at Georgetown College on July 29.

The Bengals made another call to Palmer’s representatives last week, according to league sources, before they released Palmer’s younger brother, Jordan. Whether any of the overtures would resolve the situation was unclear, but it was the first sign of dialogue in the saga since Palmer, the Bengals’ starting quarterback since 2004, told the Bengals in the offseason he would retire if he was not traded.

On July 26, in the team’s pre-camp lunceon, Brown had his harshest comments for Palmer, saying: “Carson signed a contract, he made a commitment. He gave us his word. We relied on his word and his commitment. We expected him to perform here. If he is going to walk away from his commitment we aren’t going to reward him for doing it.”

New offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, asked a couple weeks back what would likely happen if Palmer were to suddenly report, said, “In order to play quarterback at this level in the new system, I would think he would want to practice, and obviously he’s made a decision very clear that he’s not coming back. But if he did walk in I’d welcome him back I’d suppose. He’d have to win the job.”

The Bengals drafted Andy Dalton with their second-round pick and signed free agent Bruce Gradkowski. Dan LeFevour is the third quarterback on the roster

Palmer is scheduled to make $11.5 million this season, or $676,470.59 per week for 17 weeks. With the Bengals well under the salary cap (around $29 million), they would not be forced to trade or release Palmer.
