Carson Palmer is the epitome of a dollarnaire, having been so wise with his NFL money, that Palmer will walk away from any situation that he doesn’t feel is prudent to his success. Palmer who is due $13 million from the Raiders this season was simply asked to take a $3 million pay cut, that still would have ensured a base salary of $10 million.

Michael Huff brings Free Safety Relief to Ravens...

But somehow Ozzie pulled it off.           Michael Huff, FS/CB, age 30, 6-1, 208, 6th year out of Texas, drafted in...
