08:00 AM ET 10.12 | Cincinnati Bengals owner Mike Brown was at one point adamant he wouldn't move his disgruntled quarterback. [Brown] declined comment Tuesday about whether the team has plans to trade quarterback Carson Palmer before next week's trade deadline. "I don't have a thing to say about that," Brown said. ... Palmer is currently out of football, holding true to his pledge to retire if he isn't traded. Brown hasn't given in to Palmer's demand and said in the preseason that the Bengals consider Palmer to be retired. The Bengals retain Palmer's rights since he is under contract, meaning he can't play for another team unless he is traded or released. The NFL's trade deadline is Tuesday, Oct.18.

This is why the Bengals haven't been relevant in decades. Trade Palmer for players that can help you win.

What a vindictive weasel.

Trade him and get something out of it Brown, It's not like the Bungles can't use some help.

As always I point out, when a team is done with you, you can be cut at a drop of a hat. But when a player that has been a warrior for your terrible franchise asks out, he is held hostage.

The Bungles are sorry flat out sorry organization.

Yet, they are 3-2 in what was predicted to be a tough division.

It's the organization that is terrible. The team shows flashes every now and then.

Why do NFL trades have to be so difficult. Seattle put Aaron Curry on the block. Cinci trade Carson for Curry. Boom. Done.

Mike Brown is going to trade Palmer to his Mum?

Taking business matters personally isn't the way to get ahead.

Dallas Cowboys should trade for Palmer... Seriously... I think he's got way more potential to take them somewhere vs Romo...

Exactly. This is the kind of person that would rather have food rot than give it to a person in need.

Maybe if a reporter would say some of the things that are said on here maybe that would get Browns attention.......................ok probably not.

The problem with America is that no one listens.

More reason why I respect LaBron's choice to leave Cleveland. He decided his own fate. For all you LaBron haters, can you see a little clearly now?

Why would Brown do anything to help his team. It is much more important to show Palmer that he will win this game of who will blink first.

I respect his decision to move on, but I have zero respect for the way he handled the whole thing. So, no, I don't see things any differently now.

LaBron? This is a Carson Palmer thread.
Cleveland? We're taling about Cincinatti.
Basketball? WTF is that? When do they start playing? Look at yesterday's Peyton Manning thread and see how much we care about basketball.

And Palmer is NOT a free agent. He basically retired. That's the only way he could "decide his own fate."

I didn't know Mike Brown owned an NBA frachise.What does this have to do the Bengals?..This statement makes no sense.

I agree, he handled it wrong with the way the networks flocked to him for his decision. (All money earned went to a charity). And don't get me wrong, I am not a LaBron Fan. I just respect him for making his own career choices and not waiting for a frachise to do so.
Palmer is tired of losing and want to try something different. Why not let him especially when it can help your team get better. Something about the power of "ownership".
