If the Bengals have any position that won't bring a collection of suspects that vie for position, it's quarterback. In fact, one has to even wonder why you'd even need to talk about it. No one will unseat Carson Palmer. Over the offseason, the Bengals signed free agent J.T. O'Sullivan and of the 12 attempted passes in Jordan Palmer's career, two were intercepted -- of Palmer's seven career completions, the longest gained 13 yards. So really, what could we possibly say right now that we don't already know about quarterbacks in Training Camp?
That's not to say that there's no story line here. That, of course, isn't true. In fact, one of the team's larger story lines heading into Training Camp is Carson Palmer's return. Like heading into the 2006 Training Camp, this year we're wondering: How has Palmer recovered and will he return to Pro Bowl form? This, of course, also integrates a separate storyline that we'll examine later. The rebuilding project of the Bengals offensive line. If that project yields bad results, then it won't matter who's at quarterback.
