The rumors this week out of Miami are that the Dolphins are interested in Cincinatti quarterback Carson Palmer. Not only are members of the Dolphins organization interested in him, but Fins legend Dan Marino also in favor of the Dolphins trying to acquire Palmer, for the right price.
And those are the keys words, for the right price. You see, Dan would be interested in the former USC quarterback only if the Dolphins would be able to nab him for a 2nd-3rd rounder.
The problem with that is that the Bengals owner Mike Brown is very high on Palmer, and it will most likely require a 1st round pick as well as some other form of compensation to ship Palmer from Cincy to South Beach.
At this point in Palmer’s career, is a 1st round pick really worth the trouble, for a stopgap at best? I say no. Heck, I would have to be in love for a player to trade away my 1st round pick, and would have to strongly consider and debate on whether to trade away my 1st for someone like Kevin Kolb, who has more of an upside.
