Initial reports surfaced that the Cincinnati Bengals received a first round pick for the 2012 NFL Draft and a second round pick for the 2013 NFL draft that could be upgraded to a first round based on conditions that we haven't previously known. Until now.

According to ESPN's NFL Insider Chris Mortensen, the second round pick will be upgraded to a first rounder in 2013 if the Raiders win a playoff game (we're not sure if that means just this year, or one playoff win over the next two post seasons). Otherwise it will stay as a second rounder. Currently the Raiders are 4-2 in the AFC West in second place behind the San Diego Chargers.

Carson Palmer reportedly demanded a trade during the league's Conference Championship weekend with ESPN NFL Insider reporting at the time that Palmer was threatening to use the "retirement card." Palmer has said a single word about the demand, but the team took the demand serious enough to draft TCU quarterback Andy Dalton in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft. Throughout the entire process, Mike Brown has stood firm that he will not trade Palmer, standing behind his principles that players shouldn't demand their way out of a contract.
