A day after a report came out that Bengals QB Carson Palmer wanted to be traded or would consider retirement, team owner Mike Brown said he's not willing to deal the former No. 1 overall pick.

Brown said on Monday that he and Palmer met a little more than a week ago, with the QB asking to be traded. The owner told Palmer he wouldn't consider it because of how important Palmer is to the team's long-term plans and that the two will meet again to try and resolve any issues.

Cincinnati tumbled to a 4-12 record in 2010, a year after winning the AFC North. Palmer didn't play particularly well and was frustrated with the lack of effort given by some of the team's skill-position players.

The way we see it

Even if they were to consider a deal, the Bengals would not be able to trade Palmer until the players and owners reach a resolution on the Collective Bargaining Agreement. The NFL is a quarterback-driven league, and the Bengals might be able to fetch the equivalent of the second- and fourth-round picks the Eagles received from Washington for Donovan McNabb if they choose to change their stance on Palmer.
