Lewis Denies Carson Palmer-To-Raiders Trade Rumors

On NFL Network Monday afternoon, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis was asked if there was any chance the Bengals would trade Carson Palmer to the Raiders. His response was the same it has been since February – Palmer has retired and the team has moved on. “I think our organization is very firm in the statement that Carson is, as everybody knows here, retired,” Lewis said.

“We have moved on and that’s enough to be said because we don’t need to make anymore headlines for any reason other than what we do on Sundays. That’s the only thing that counts.” Besides Palmer being traded to a team that could win the AFC West – the Raiders are one game behind San Diego – Oakland has only $6 million in salary cap room left. Palmer’s prorated salary works out to $6.9 million. Another factor is that Oakland doesn’t have a second-, third- or fourth-round pick next year.
