UPDATE: According to a source, Palmer isn't in Cincinnati, per Pro Football Talk.

ORIGINAL: Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer and his agent David Dunn have been seen at Paul Brown Stadium Saturday morning, according to a (protected) tweet from 700 WLW producer James Bedingfield. Reports surfaced over the week that the Bengals and Palmer met in late July, with nothing coming to fruition. Bedingfield is trying to confirm and we're sure that we'll hear updates as they unfold. In other words don't run with this at warp speed and as always, remain suspicious.

Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer did report something new on Thursday, writing that the Bengals reached out to Palmer's representatives last week, but "nothing resulted."

The Bengals are prepared for a Carson Palmer return if it happens, keeping the salary cap clear so that his cap number doesn't push the Bengals over their maximum limit -- a limit that's not counted against the Bengals until the end of the season.

In four preseason games this year, Andy Dalton completed 36 of 60 passes for 328 yards passing with one touchdown against three interceptions. Dalton is expected to head into the season as the starting quarterback for the Bengals during the team's opener against the Cleveland Browns on September 11, 2011.
