HOF QB Dan Marino Says He’d Deal Carson Palmer for a Third-Round Pick

Hall of Fame Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino believes in current Dolphins quarterback, but wouldn’t be opposed to the Dolphins trading for Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer. “I’ve always liked Carson,” Marino said according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

“For a third-rounder, I would do it.” Miami’s third-round pick is the 15th in the round, and 79th overall. The Dolphins do not have a second-round pick in this year’s draft. Palmer has spent eight seasons with the Bengals, who chose him with the first overall pick of the 2003 NFL Draft.

After sitting behind Jon Kitna his rookie season, Palmer emerged as a Pro Bowl quarterback in 2005, leading the league with a 67.8% completion percentage and 32 touchdowns. Palmer returned to the pro Bowl in 2006, but was intercepted 20 times in 2007 and an elbow injury limited him to 4 games in 2008.

    Definitely agree with Dan. Getting Carson Palmer for a third round pick would be a steal for the Dolphins. In fact, getting vince young for a third round pick would also be great.
