01:55 PM ET 02.25 | The Oakland Raiders want to restructure Carson Palmer's contract and bring the QB back next season at a reduced price. Palmer is currently set to make $13 million in 2013, but he could take a pay cut similar to the one recently assigned to Michael Vick. Vick was set to cost the Philadelphia Eagles $15.5 million next season, but after re-working his deal, he should cost his team roughly $10 million instead. Palmer is coming off a solid season with the Raiders in which he completed 61.1 percent of his passes for 4,018 yards, 22 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

Restructure? As in pretend the trade never happened and get the draft picks back?

"Palmer is coming off a solid season with the Raiders ..."

Solid, as in 4-12?

$13M? No way that is happening. I think even Palmer knew this would be a likely scenario when he signed his deal.

No team should be willing to take his cap hit.
