Originally written on NFL Trade Rumors  |  Last updated 3/28/13
Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports reports that Carson Palmer‘s recent decision to not restructure his contract is based on a sense that he’s no longer willing to play for the Raiders. Silver mentions that Palmer may actually prefer to be a backup on a contending than return to the Raiders. Silver adds that Palmer could end up signing with the Cardinals if released. Oakland could look to replace Palmer by either trading for Matt Flynn or drafting Geno Smith at No. 3 overall, according to Silver. Given what has transpired in recent weeks, Silver writes that there’s an “increasing sense” from both sides that a divorce is imminent. Oakland’s roster is in a bad shape to say the least, so it’s by no means surprising to see an aging quarterback want to move on. Still, Palmer is set to make a ridiculous $13 million for the 2013 season. According to Silver’s source, Palmer isn’t concerned about the money, but is willing to use it as a way to get him out of Oakland. This figures to be a popular topic in the weeks leading up to this year’s NFL Draft.   The post Report: Carson Palmer Willing To Be A Backup Than Return To The Raiders appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
