Warner keeps beating Palmer-to-Cards drum

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.

Why is this a story?  The guy is being honest, and I agree with him.  Having endured about three years of Marc Bulger past his prime, I would bet my house that the Cardinals would be better off with Palmer than Bulger.  That's the definition of a no brainer.

No one has the right to diss Warner. Roll the tape back and he could arguably be one of the best pure pocket passers to play the game--EVER. Watch the playoff performances, and sh*t I would retire too after the jack job he got after throwing that pick in the Conference game.
I completely agree that Carson would be ridiculous in Arizona. Franchises like the Bungles will always fail because they refuse to think ahead, because if they really wanted to succeed they could swing Carson for at least a 2nd and a 4th. Although I hate the team--take NE for example, they always deal their disgruntled vets with some productivity to get top rated picks to retool in the draft.

LOL @ bonadrag. Newsflash, pal: Warner retired, he wasn't cut. Arizona absolutely wanted him back, but he was adamant...he was done. Warner has HOF numbers. He has won a SuperBowl. He led two different teams to the SB...both franchises without a history of getting there before. C'mon man...wake up! You may not be a 'Warner hater', but you're not particularly informed about this subject either.

Jay Gruden wants to talk to Palmer once the lockout is lifted.  He wants to sell Palmer on the new system in Cincy.  I still think there is a 50-50 or better chance Palmer is starting for the Bengals in 2011.  BTW, if traded, Mike Brown will take nothing less than a 1st round pick.  If the Eagles want a 1st rounder for Kolb, then the Bengals should insist on more for Palmer because Palmer is better than Kolb.

I think Carson Palmer would be a good fit for the Cardinals.

Palmer can get away from the Bengals and be able to play in a much easier division which might just resurrect his career. Arizona would get an upgrade at QB and would probably make Larry Fitzgerald happier.

The only problem is how much would Arizona be willing to give up to get him?

I would assume it would have to be something along the lines of the Donovan McNabb trade: A second rounder and a 3rd or fourth depending on productivity. Not a bad deal for either team and it would make at least a couple guys happy.

I always liked Palmer but if he wants out (and I don't blame him) then let him go.

But for God Sakes get something in return for him Mike Brown, you get nothing if he retires!

Are you a complete idiot? You should not be allowed to post again, esp about AZ football. Warner RETIRED, he was not cut.
The man is the one of the best all time QBs, esp of our era. Highest pct of 300 yd games in history, fastest to 10000 and 20000 yds by games. He started for 4 full seasons in the NFL and look at them, 3 SB appearances(where he had his team in position to win them all). 3 highest SB yard totals of all time, and that includes numbers Peyton Brady and Brees nor anyone else matched
Get a clue.
