It's pretty bad, especially considering all the cap space and actual money they have to give Palmer too.

Holy crap. A conditional 1st in 2013! Anyone heard what that condition is. Make the playoffs or win a playoff game? This could be one of the worst deals in NFL history.


Oakland making bad deals is just a tribute to Al Davis.

The condition is apparently if they win a playoff game lol. If they don't win a playoff game, they give up a 2nd in 2013 instead of a first.

I don't disagree that it's an overpayment considering the predicament the Bengals were in, and this pretty much destroys the Raiders' 2012 draft (and could hurt 2013 if that pick turns into a 1st rounder)... BUT, I do still think Palmer has something left* and the Raiders are a lot better today than they were yesterday. They're really going for it. It's a big, probably foolish, gamble. We'll see how it pays off.

I think David Garrard needing surgery really stung them here; they could have just signed him and gotten a decent replacement without giving up anything.

*: I know the interceptions were awful last year, but everything else wasn't that bad; his completion rate was just under Matt Ryan, he was 6th in passing yards, 9th in touchdowns ... I don't think he's finished, and teams are going to respect him more than they would a Kyle Boller, which could help the running game (as if McFadden needs any more help :P). Perhaps the biggest issue will be how quick he can learn the offense and get into the rhythm of playing again.

Regardless of what happens in Oakland though, I definitely agree this is a major win for the Bengals. Peter King said he heard Marvin Lewis would have been thrilled to just get a 2nd rounder for Palmer.

hey the way the Raiders draft in the first round, not having the picks might be a BONUS and Palmer may be better then the stiffs they tend to land anyway :lol:

and watch the Bengals STILL screw up 4 first rounders in 2 years :P
