Tuesday afternoon at 4 PM, the NFL trade deadline will end, and most teams are busy working on trade deals to HOPEFULLY
improve their current roster.
Oakland Raiders might be in DESPERATION MODE
, as they're out of a leader in the Quarterback position. As reported earlier this morning, the Raiders are putting their trust and THEIR WINNING SEASON
(thus so far
) on the back of rookie QB Terrelle Pryor. Pryor, who is coming off his five-game suspension for his actions in the Ohio State scandal MOST LIKELY get his chance at being the starter this coming up Sunday against the Kansas City Cheifs.
Now, the Raiders have a "somewhat good" QB in Kyle Boller, but most in Oakland WON'T
give Boller the chance to prove that he still has what it takes to lead a team to glory (something he hasn't done since his earlier days with the Baltimore Ravens
After Oakland's starter Jason Campbell was declared DONE FOR THE SEASON
after suffering a broken collarbone in the 2nd quarter Sunday afternoon after the 24-17 win against the Cleveland Browns, the Raiders began calling teams in search of a Quarterback.
Yahoo Sports is reporting that Oakland has called the Cincinnati Bengals to possibly get their "retired/benched" Quarterback Carson Palmer.
Last week, the Bengals MADE IT CLEARED
that they wouldn't trade Palmer away, but seeing that the Bengals are at 4-2, and are in 2nd place in the AFC North with their rookie QB Andy Dalton, it wouldn't hurt for the Bengals to trade away Palmer for something valuable.
It makes PERFECT SENSE
to trade Palmer away seeing that Palmer (EVERY WEEK
) is asking to leave the team. Owner Mike Brown isn't willing (won't
) let Palmer leave the team.
Many believe Brown doesn't want to trade Palmer away to Oakland because of the thought that (if both teams continues playing winning football
) they'll met up in the playoffs causing a SHOWDOWN
between Palmer (if he was traded to Oakland and started for them
) and owner Mike Brown.
If the Raiders are unable to get Palmer, so feel that Jacksonville Jaguars EX Quarterback David Garrard, who was released by the Jaguars back in September.
