08:03 AM ET 07.06 | Chances are, if both Mike Brown and Carson Palmer are taken at their word, we've seen the last down played by the latter. [Palmer] says he'll never play for the Cincinnati Bengals again and his house in the Cincinnati suburbs recently sold. One of his favorite targets said Thursday he doesn't doubt the quarterback won't play for the team again. Chad Ochocinco, interviewed by SportsCenter on Thursday, said Palmer is a man of his word. Ochocinco said that if Palmer comes out of character, and says he wants out or is going to retire, then the Bengals should listen to what he says. "I know him really well. He will sit out, he will retire," Ochocinco said. ... Ochocinco added that Palmer is "frustrated" and wants a "fresh start."

And frustrated fans won't miss him much. We certainly won't miss the weekly CP thread.

Surrounded by Mike Brown, Ocho, Chris Henry (RIP), TO and so many others for so many years, it's no shock he's pretty much Audi 5000!

You HAVE to!!!

I'm suprised 85 didn't say he'd play quarterback. Palmer will wind up somewhere else. The Bengals will trade him.

Didn't we already know this?

Only Bengal fan that wants CP is Mike Brown and I really question if he is a true/loyal fan.....




P.S. - Go with him Sloutcho Cinco

Roy Williams sues ex-girlfriend to get engagement ring back


On Valentine???s Day, Cowboys receiver Roy Williams mailed his girlfriend an engagement ring worth $76,600. The girlfriend rejected the proposal but kept the ring, and now Williams is suing her.

The Odessa American reports that Williams filed a lawsuit Thursday, claiming he should be able to regain possession of the ring he sent to Brooke Daniels, a former beauty pageant winner who lived with Williams for a year.

In the lawsuit, Williams says he asked for the ring to be returned and Daniels said she lost it. At that point, Williams reported it lost to his insurance company, but the insurance company???s investigation indicated that Daniels??? father, Michael Daniels, remained in possession of it.

Michael Daniels confirmed to the Odessa American that he has the ring and said he???s going to give it back to Williams to avoid the lawsuit, even though he says Williams is lying about the claim that the ring was lost, and that Williams told his daughter that she could keep it.

"He said [to Brooke Daniels], ???I???m not like a lot of people, I don???t want the ring back. You???ll eventually come back to me,??? and she didn???t," Michael Daniels said.
