Carson Palmer: I Got Money In The Bank!

Bengals QB Carson Palmer doesn’t ever want to play another down in Cincinnati. He wants out of the Queen City, but the Brown family aren’t looking to grant him his wish. So what does Palmer do next, go on a tirade about what he won’t do and how much money he has.

Palmer has said that he’s confident the Bengals will eventually trade him and that he will, “never set foot in Paul Brown Stadium again,” WCPO-TV in Cincinnati reported. Palmer also went on the record saying, “I have $80 million in the bank. I don’t have to play football for money. I’ll play it for the love of the game but that would have to be elsewhere. I’m prepared to live my life.”

Well alright, now… witcha bragging azz!!!

My first thought after reading this was that Palmer’s music selection before gametime is nothing but hip hop. Clearly I can’t be the only person that immediately thought of this song after reading his quote:

My second thought was, I hope he does get traded. He’s a Ravens killer, with a 9-4 record over my squad. I’d want nothing more than to see Palmer go somewhere else. No matter how bad (or sometimes good) the Bengals are, they are always a thorn in black and purple’s you-know-what.

So what happens next: The Bengals give in and trade him? Or does Palmer pull a Jake Plummer and retire and start playing in handball tournaments for the rest of his life? Okay, maybe he won’t be doing THAT… but it will be interesting to see how this plays out.

PS- Carson if you are ever looking to show some philanthropy , you can make it drizzle over on thenflchick.com!. You know, since you’re rich and all……..

  1. Good stuff. I can understand where Carson is coming from and he should be set free from contractual obligations if he no longer wishes to play for the Bengals.

    However, I’m of the opinion that you never tip your financial hand in any negotiation.

    He’s gotta remember that any potential employer will remember his ” I have money in the bank ” scenario. In the long run that may hurt him in future negotiations.

    But it won’t hurt him in retirement on a golf course ( or handball tourny ).

  2. I got money in the bank! Aye! Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh…..

    I’m really over here crunk, volumed turned up and jiggin’ to this Lil’ Scrappy…hahahahahahahaha.

    We’ll see what happens. Hopefully, they do get him on up outta there. Sometimes, relationships run their course, and this one certainly has.

  3. This is a prime example of why players doen’t need more money. You get into situations where they don’t care to meet their end of a contract and can simply retire to get out… Retire filthy rich.
