There are two things that you know even if you live under a rock in Cincinnati: one is that you know you can save 15 percent, or more, with Geico car insurance, and two is that Carson Palmer no longer wants to be a Bengal.
It all started back before the Bengals coached in the Senior Bowl. Carson Palmer's agent, David Dunn, released a statement that said Palmer requested a trade from Bengals owner Mike Brown and that if he wasn't traded, he would consider retirement. Then, Brown said that the Bengals would not be trading Palmer. After that, Palmer put his Cincinnati house on the market. Then, just to really hammer it home, Palmer's agent, Dunn, said that he'd be really surprised if Palmer returned to play in Cincinnati.
However, NFL writer Peter King thinks the exact opposite. He wouldn't be surprised if Palmer sticks around in Cincinnati at all.
I think it's not over for Carson Palmer in Cincinnati. Jay Gruden's going to convince him he can be great in Gruden's West Coast offense, and I believe Marvin Lewis will do Palmer a favor and make sure neither Chad Ochocinco or Terrell Owens will be on the roster opening day -- whenever that is.
