In case he has yet to make it clear, Carson Palmer has told a confidant that he "will never set foot in Paul Brown Stadium again," according to WCPO-TV in Cincinnati.

Palmer has demanded a trade, but owner Mike Brown said he will not trade the team's quarterback. Palmer reportedly said that he has "$80 million in the bank. I don't have to play football for money."

Palmer's agent, David Dunn, released the following statement:

"Because of the lack of success that Carson and the Bengals have experienced together, Carson strongly feels that a separation between him and the Bengals would be in the best interest of both parties."

The Bengals drafted Palmer with the top overall pick in the 2003 draft.

The way we see it

It appears that the Bengals are going into April's draft on the assumption that Palmer will not be on the team in 2011. Given a supporting cast that included top WRs Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens, Palmer and the Bengals' offense disappointed, going from division champs in 2009 to 4-12 in 2010.
