12:35 PM ET 03.30 | The Arizona Cardinals continue to look at acquiring Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer, according to Mike Jurecki of AM 910 Radio in Phoenix. According to Jurecki, the deal would come with the condition Palmer restructures his contract. The compensation would be conditional draft picks. The Raiders traded for Palmer in 2011, giving up a first-round pick in 2012 and a second-round pick in this year's draft. Palmer is scheduled to make $13 million in 2013 and he isn't willing to restructure it in Oakland. Palmer is 8-16 as a starter in Oakland, throwing for 6,771 yards, 36 touchdowns and 30 interceptions. He'll turn 34 years old during the 2013 season. Oakland is said to be looking to make a deal with Seattle for their back-up quarterback, Matt Flynn, who was brought in during free agency in 2012. He was beaten out for the job by rookie Russell Wilson but still carries with him a starting quarterback's salary. It's less than what Palmer is scheduled to make, however.

It would be a terrible move for the Cardinals to make that deal with the Raiders because of the terrible O line of the Cards and Palmer's foot speed.

I would not invest much in Palmer, at this stage in his career a team is better off with youth!
