After the Oakland Raiders acquired quarterback Matt Flynn
from the Seattle Seahawks, they picked up discussions with the Arizona

Heres the simple reason that Carson Palmer is an Arizona Cardinal. When you have a chance to upgrade the quarterback position, you upgrade the quarterback position.

The fact that the...
