The Carson Palmer Auction

I read an article on PFT the other day that stated both Seattle and Arizona were in the hunt to acquire Kolb from Seattle. Rosenthall writes:

The Eagles can only hope that the Seahawks get involved in order to drive the price up.  This is definitely a recipe for some good offers being sent to Philly: Two division rivals who believe they can contend right now if they can just find a quarterback.

This really got me going. I thought to myself how stupid can Mike Brown be? (which was the first time I've ever asked my self that I swear) Here on one hand we have a guy whom has shown close to nothing in the NFL. On the other hand we have a two time Pro Bowl QB that has sent Chad Johnson to the Pro Bowl 6 times. Now I know a lot of you are thinking Carson has nothing left. I argue he has nothing left myself. My point is though we often find ourselves arguing what we could get for him.

IF these teams knew we were shopping him I could see an all out storage war auction for his services. Arizona Cardinals G.M. recently said "We are going to be aggressive" when speaking about acquiring a QB. Pete Carrol is rumored to be willing to give up children (if he has any) to rekindle his relationship with Carson Palmer. We all know that a first round pick is the asking price from the Eagles for Kolb. My guess is that it's going to take more to get him due to other teams in demand.

Is it unfair to think that Carson Palmer would start a bid at about a 1rst and a 5th by the Cardinals, with Pete Carrol swarming in like Dave Hester with a big  "YYYUUUUPPP" when Mike Brown is calling for a 1rst and a 3rd? Just a thought. Obviously Carson is a greater commodity than Kevin Kolb and I don't think it's unfair to think we could end up with a couple high picks for him. I think a lot of times when we discuss this we undervalue what he could bring in. When taking in to consideration how many teams are rumored to be interested. We could very well find ourselves in blockbuster trade with teams bidding desperately to find out what is left in our broken down storage named Carson Palmer.
