The Carson Palmer era in Oakland is officially over.
Tuesday, a day after the Raiders made a move to get Matt Flynn from the Seahawks, the team cut ties with Carson Palmer, trading him for nothing better than a 7th round pick to the Arizona Cardinals.
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.
