A couple months ago, Kurt Warner made it very clear on a radio appearance that he believed Carson Palmer would succeed in Arizona, stating that Palmer would be "tremendous" in that system. (Oddly: a few months ago I thought the Cardinals might "have a look" at Cam Newton. Wow.)

Well, Warner repeated those marks after the Cards wrapped up their draft and didn't address the quarterback position, stating on the Dan Patrick Show that Palmer would be a better fit for the Cardinals than Marc Bulger, Donovan McNabb or Kevin Kolb.

“I would take Carson,” Warner said.

He also apparently said that Palmer is in a "crazy" situation (Cincinnati, everyone!) but that the former Heisman-Trophy winner would thrive in Arizona.

And he might. The only problem is, he's got to escape the clutches of Mike Brown before that can actually happen.

Fortunately for Palmer -- and perhaps Arizona -- the Bengals took Andy Dalton during the NFL Draft, and might be amenable to actually getting something in return for Palmer, rather than letting him retire.

If they weren't so cheap, they could have given Leinart a chance. You can't tell me Anderson is better. Maybe Leinart is a bust, but at this point it is purely conjecture. One thing we do know, the team was a contender with Warner. They weren't even pretenders with those other ( can't get my self to even call them QB's) clowns.

Exactly NFL contracts are not guaranteed. They can cut Palmer and not own him anything. Owners what to act like they don't just decide to cut players under contract. Bengals are fools not to at least trade him and get something.

I sure hope that Cincinnati forces Palmer to honor the rest of his contract. If Palmer wasn't going to be happy and willing to play out his contract, he shouldn't have signed a deal for so many years. If he is that content on not playing for a team he is contracted to play with, I hope he is forced into retirement rather than give him any satisfaction to play elsewhere.

Right. Because teams honor their end of contracts all the time. What's good for the goose...

If I had to play against the Ravens and Steelers Defenses 4 games every year I would want to be traded or retire too!!!

Your comment seems to be a real cut off my nose in spite of my face position. In your zeal to take out some hatred on Palmer, the Bengals should also screw themselves. I mean, whoever was involved should have made Elway a major league baseball player instead of reaching a decision that allowed him to go to Denver. Well everyone to hs own drummer.

Warner was a completely brilliant QB who was lucky enough to be a part of the greatest show on turf where his talents could be properly exploited. If Palmer ended up in Arizona the results for both Palmer and the Cards would pretty great I think. As a Packers fan I`m not ultra-keen on it happening but as a football fan first I hope Palmer gets to go somewhere he can thrive in the same way Warner did in `St. Louis and Arizona.
