Is Carson Palmer Yearning To Join Bucs?
April 1st, 2013
What quarterback wouldn’t want to come to Tampa for a chance to throw jump-ball bombs to Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams, handoff to Doug Martin, and drop back behind a behemoth, veteran offensive line?
It seems soon-to-be-jettisoned Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer wants to do just that. Per BSPN, NFL insider Adam Schefter, Palmer is yearning to be Tampa Bay’s 1A option.
– Those who know soon-to-be former Raiders QB Carson Palmer believe he was hoping to wind in Tampa Bay with Bucs. Doesn’t look that way now.

Peter King of SI.com and NBC Sports fame, claimed Palmer is a shoe-in to be traded to Arizona for possibly a fourth- or fifth-round pick and that the Cardinals will restructure Palmer’s contract.
Is it possible Palmer doesn’t want to start in Arizona and would prefer a more comfortable job with a more dangerous team like the Bucs? Perhaps Palmer is eager to take on the grueling New Schiano Order conditioning tests when the Bucs report back to Tampa in two weeks.
Regardless, as Joe’s written previously, Joe’s not sure Josh Freeman has the mental fortitude with a capable, veteran backup breathing down his neck. Joe also remembers the boos raining down on Freeman during home games last season. Those don’t need to turn into Palmer chants. Not this season.
