Bucs Made Play For Carson PalmerSeptember 25th, 2013
It seems that the Bucs had issues with Josh Freeman prior to drafting the hero of the outfit that bears his name, the Mike Glennon Mob. Speaking to the Tampa Bay pen and mic club this morning, Desert Rats quarterback Carson Palmer said Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik was pushing hard for his services in the offseason.
“My agent had said that Tampa had been contacting him a lot,” Palmer said. “I would have been very excited to be there. The organization has a lot of good players across the board.”
So apparently, Dominik could not promise Palmer a starting gig right out of the chute this season, but the Desert Rats did.
Joe wonders what the Bucs’ record would be with Palmer at the helm starting Week 1? BSPN’s Adam Schefter learned back in April that Palmer had hoped to land in Tampa Bay.
