Carson Palmer ESPN’s Bill Williamson mentions that Raiders QB Carson Palmer will most likely be asked to take a pay cut during the offseason. Palmer, 33, is expected to back in Oakland despite only winning 4 games. As of now, he’s set to make $13 million for the 2013 season and has another $15 million coming his way in 2014. Given the Raiders current cap situation, it seems like a safe bet to assume that he’ll be approached about reworking his deal. The Raiders have said that they plan to give Terrelle Pryor more looks during next year’s training camp, but there’s still a chance that they could bring in another quarterback at some point during the offseason, most likely the draft. Darrius Heyward-Bey Heyward-Bey has been mentioned as possible cap casualty in recent weeks given that his salary for the next season is $7.721 million. Williamson notes that his cap figure is actually over $10 million, but still believes he’ll Oakland should try to retain him. Even if he’s released outright, it’s highly unlikely that an NFL team would be willing to pay him anywhere near $7.7 million, so it probably makes sense for him to consider adjusting his salary while he enters into the final year of his rookie deal.
