Sources: Carson Palmer To The Raiders
Needing to fill a void fast as a result of Jason Campbell's collarbone injury, the Raiders have apparently found their guy in Palmer. Dropping two first round picks is a big deal and it proved to be enough for the Bengals to get rid of their former quarterback. It's a risky move for the Raiders, but if Palmer is productive in the black and silver, it could be a very worthwhile move. There was nothing to lose for the Bengals, but getting two first round picks for a player that said he wouldn't play for Cincinnati seems like a pretty good deal.
According to the report, the first first-round pick is in 2012 and the other is a conditional first-round pick in 2013. Palmer was in the Bay Area on Tuesday morning getting a physical before the deal could be completed.
According to a source, if the Raiders win a playoff game in the 2011 season, the Bengals would get a first-round draft pick in 2013. If the Raiders don't win a playoff game in the 2011 season then the Bengals would receive a second-round pick in 2013.
