Another Sign That Rapture Isn't Here: Mike Brown Reiterates That Carson Palmer Will Not Be Traded

Let's see. An evangelistic priest claimed that the beginning of the end would arrive Saturday afternoon, basically announcing that Rapture, the end of the world, is upon us. We had assumed this would mean massive earthquakes, flooding on a global scale, everything you basically see on SyFi or during a Roland Emmerich film and Bengals owner Mike Brown trading Carson Palmer.

Well, it's Monday so no Rapture as far as we can tell. And Mike Brown still has no intention of trading Carson Palmer. Albert Breer of the NFL Network writes that during Monday's NFL Spring Meeting that Bengals owner Mike Brown said he had no intention of trading Carson Palmer.

"We don't plan to trade Carson," Brown said Monday at the NFL Spring Meeting. "He's important to us. He's a very fine player, and we do want him to come back. If he chooses not to, he'd retire. And we would go with Andy Dalton, the younger player we drafted, who's a good prospect.

"Ideally, we'd have both of them. That'd be the best way to go forward. If we don't have Carson, we'll go with Andy."

That was close. Carson Palmer remains with the Bengals and the world has yet to come to an end. And we used to hate Mondays.
