Mike Brown wasted no time taking the high road when he announced that the Bengals would not be trading Carson Palmer.
“Carson signed a contract, he made a commitment, he gave his word. We relied on his word. We relied on his commitment. We expected him to perform here. If he’s going to walk away from his commitment, we aren’t going to reward him for doing it.”
Yeah, and you could have traded him without letting this mess become public. Palmer would have brought at minimum a 2nd rounder, probably considerably more. You think Minnesota wouldn’t have jumped on that? Miami? There must be at least 10 team out there who could immediately upgrade with ol’ Rosie.
But no, Mike Brown has to posture and talk about commitment. Commitment! Coming from Brown the word is laughable.
What a douche.
