Owner Mike Brown continues to stay quiet on the Carson Palmer front, and in a recent Cincy Enquirer interview, he again refused to talk about the QB’s future.
During Saturday’s interview about the lockout, Bengals owner Mike Brown was asked about quarterback Carson Palmer. Since trades continue to be on hold for the indefinite future, Palmer’s options continue to be playing here or retiring. Since the lockout prohibits teams from talking to players or engaging in active conversations about contracts or trades, Brown said he didn’t want to address specific players but did have one interesting comment. “I’m not looking to send messages through the media or to the player or the public about a player,” Brown said. In other words, Brown continues to be entrenched in his position about not trading the quarterback despite repeated reports from Palmer’s friends that he is at peace with retiring unless traded. It also means the public dialogue will continue to be mostly one sided, coming from Palmer’s side.
