Oakland GM Reggie McKenzie said he wants to build the Raiders the right way, and the first thing is fix Carson Palmer’s ridiculous contract.
Palmer hasn’t been the franchise quarterback, or even a top level one, so it makes sense to reduce his salary.
The Raiders front office wants to align Palmer’s performance with his contract. Palmer signed a six year contract extension through the 2014 season with the Bengals on December 29, 2005.
In addition to the three years remaining on his existing deal, the value of the extension was worth $118.75 million over nine years. Mike Florio of Profootballtalk.com writes:
'And so it’s no surprise that the Raiders will try to “restructure” Carson Palmer’s contract, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
In Palmer’s case, a restructuring would be more along the lines of a steep pay cut. Palmer is due to earn a base salary of $13 million in 2013.'

Free Agent Defensive Tackle Desmond Bryant was arrested Sunday morning on charges of Misdemeanor Criminal Mischief after going to a neighbors home, intoxicated, and causing commotion.
He was booked on $1,000 bail at around 9:30 AM, and he looks pretty, uhh, dumbfounded.
Raiders DT Desmond Bryant’s arrest for Criminal Mischief might have gone unnoticed in most circles – he’s not a household name after all – except for two things. First, his name is very close to the Cowboy’s WR Dez Bryant (a fact that tripped up more than one national writer into initially saying it was the Cowboys receiver that was arrested in Florida) and second, he...
If I was the Raiders I would cut Bryant right now, just off the strength of this mugshot. I don’t care if the charge was just misdemeanor of criminal mischief.
You have to be unstable to look like this after an arrest. He should be charged with several felonies just because. Even the other Dez Bryant thinks this is out of pocket.
