According to Bengals owner Mike Brown, Carson Palmer has two choices regarding his future in the NFL: be Cincinnati's starting quarterback in 2011 or retire.

Speaking with Albert Breer of at the NFL owners meeting in Indianapolis, Brown said that he would welcome Palmer back to the team as the starter and as a mentor for second-round pick Andy Dalton. What he would not do is trade Palmer to another team, something the player has asked for.

"We don't plan to trade Carson," Brown said Monday. "He's important to us. He's a very fine player, and we do want him to come back. If he chooses not to, he'd retire. And we would go with Andy Dalton, the younger player we drafted, who's a good prospect."

Palmer has been the team's starting QB since 2004, helping the team make the playoffs twice since then. His backup and brother Jordan Palmer has been leading the Bengals' offseason workouts in his absence.
