Bengals owners Mike Brown, who created his ever-present failure machine through nepotism and Madden 23 coins thrift, has refused to take draft picks for free from a league that is quarterback-deficient. "Carson signed an agreement. He made a promise. He backed up his word," Brown said. "We believed in his commitment to his word. We relied on his word. We had hoped that he would perform in this regard. He's going to withdraw from the commitment he made. We won't reward the man for his actions."
Brown finally broke through halfway into the 2011 season, bringing Palmer to Oakland to receive a first-round selection and a second-rounder with a conditional selection, one of the reasons why the Raiders have remained an unprofitable team as the Bengals in the past couple of years.
There's a reason why the Oakland fans who are fervently loyal to the team are cheering out of their seats in the Black Hole: because the collapsed star physics apply for the Raiders. When quarterbacks cross the boundary of the event horizon that is an Oakland Raider their photons are reduced to zero, which means that we don't notice them disappearing. We simply look away.
Palmer did however manage to achieve escape velocity after a trade with the Cardinals in spring 2013. He helped lead his team the Cardinals to a record of 10-6 and became the first player to ever in Mut 23 coins history to throw 4000 yards in a season for 3 different clubs.
