Cincinnati Bengals, Carson Palmer Need to Part Ways
Palmer has played with the kind of players that have gotten run out of other football towns like Dallas, Philadelphia and San Francisco and another teammate who still can't decide what his last name really is.
CBS Sports columnist, Gregg Doyel, a guy I respect and enjoy reading, took exception to Palmer's threats saying he was playing this like a "take his ball and go home" type of situation. What I found interesting was the fact Doyel mentioned the word 'legacy.'
While Palmer does have a Heisman trophy as a quarterback at USC, as far as the NFL is concerned there really isn't a legacy to speak of.
He doesn't have a Super Bowl title nor does he have a single playoff victory. Otherwise known as one win shy of another Tony Romo.
There's no question Palmer wants to continue to play in the NFL, the game that has allowed him to make a living playing a game, he just doesn't want to do so in Cincinnati.
