Bengals-Palmer revisited

The Bengals had to be floored when they received the Raiders' offer for quarterback Carson Palmer last month.

Before trade talks with Oakland heated up, the best offer the Bengals had for Palmer was a third-round pick, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. So, Cincinnati had to be ecstatic when the Raiders gave up a first-round pick in 2012 and a second-round pick that could become a first in 2013.
