David Dunn, the agent for Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer, has issued the following statement.
“Carson met with Bengals owner Mike Brown recently. They both expressed profound disappointment in how the team fared last season, and in how it has generally performed during Carson’s tenure with the team. 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. Carson could not respect the Brown family any more than he does or be more appreciative of what the Browns have done for him and his wife Shaelyn and his family.”
Palmer requested a trade last week, which has been denied by Bengals’ ownership.
No players can be traded until a new collective bargaining agreement has been reached.
