Did you know that Carson Palmer might not play for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2011? Seriously. It has nothing to do with injuries. No. It has nothing to do with money, considering he's incredibly wealthy for a starting quarterback with a 45-51 regular season record and two playoff losses. He just hates playing for the Cincinnati Bengals; or as Chad Ochocinco says, he hates losing. Not that pick-sixes, stalled third downs or five straight three-and-outs had anything to do with losing. The Mike Brown and Carson Palmer stalemate rages on while the team offered a contingency plan with Andy Dalton and, dare I say it, Jordan Palmer.
The entire Bengals squad worked out together on Wednesday, running plays with Andy Dalton, Jordan and Dan LeFevour throwing passes to Jerome Simpson, Ryan Whalen, Jordan Shipley, Quan Cosby, Jermaine Gresham and Chase Coffman.
Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer said that Dalton and Jordan "looked sharp on a variety of throws and routes".
Quote of the day — Goes to Bobbie Williams when asked about Dalton’s plight (rookie QB in a new offense without the benefit of OTAs): “I don’t know. I’ll just say, God help the young man. I mean, he’s placed in a challenging position. But you know what, in this profession you’re always placed in a challenging position, it’s up to you how you (react) to it.”
