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.
