Oakland Raiders trade Carson Palmer
- Updated: April 1, 2013
Earlier on Monday, McKenzie was able to secure quarterback Matt Flynn from the Seattle Seahawks via trade. The acquisition of Flynn made Palmer expendable.
McKenzie should be given credit for how this all took place. Instead of just releasing Palmer and receiving nothing in return, he was able to get a late round pick for him.
Palmer never panned out for the Raiders the way former coach Hue Jackson thought he would. He was 8-16 during his time as a Raider. A subpar record to say the least, but when added to the fact that the Raiders gave up a first round pick last year and a second round pick in this year’s NFL draft, it looks even worse.
Although Palmer’s win-loss record in Oakland was not impressive, his numbers were not horrible. Last season, he threw for 4,018 yards, 22 touchdowns and only 14 interceptions. It will be interesting to see how Palmer, new Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald come together.
