Fooch's Note: To update this FanPost, Carson Palmer is not actually retiring yet, but rather is prepared to leave football rather than play for the Bengals (I added "prepared" to the FanPost title). He has not announced he will retire but he has said he'll never set foot in Paul Brown Stadium again. Of course, if he were to end up with the 49ers next year, he'd have a road game at Cincinnati. I'm trying to find the rules on NFL retirement and what it means as far as changing teams. Research TQBWSNBN would seem to be the best way to figure out the rules of retiring and switching teams. If anybody has a few minutes, can you try and get an answer on that?
Well it was reported on ESPN that Carson won't step foot into Paul Brown Stadium again...and that he has 80million in the bank so he is preparted to retire. Begin the Carson to S.F. rumors! I thought I heard it reported on an L.A. radio station that he has told former USC players that he wants to be in SF and that his wife is from the Bay Area. I could see the 9ers sending a 2012 4th rounder for him...he just killed any trade value he had for Cincy.
