PLAYERS: Andre Carter
TEAMS: Oakland Raiders

Carson Palmer believes that Chad Johnson will bounce back.

For seven years quarterback Carson Palmer played the straight-laced family man to Chad Johnson’s nutty free spirit in their rendition of the comedy The Odd Couple. If you looked closely during their heyday Palmer was in on more than a couple of Johnson’s showboating antics and pranks. So it’s no surprise that Palmer harbors no ill-will towards him and in fact supports him...

The departure of Michael Bush to the Chicago Bears was welcome news for Darren McFadden owners looking for the former Arkansas star to be the goal line back for the Raiders in 2012.

Maurice Jones-Drew wearing Silver and Black?
