If there was any doubt that Carson Palmer wasn’t going to be under center for the Bengals in 2011, the evidence keeps mounting that he won’t be around. First his Cincy home officially sold, and next, wide out Chad Ochocinco, who also may be on his way out, says that there’s no way that Palmer will be the QB of the Bengals in 2011.
Carson Palmer says he’ll never play for the Cincinnati Bengals again and his house in the Cincinnati suburbs recently sold. One of his favorite targets said Thursday he doesn’t doubt the quarterback won’t play for the team again. Chad Ochocinco, interviewed by “SportsCenter” on Thursday, said Palmer is a man of his word. “He will sit out, he will retire,” Ochocinco said from the Atlanta Motor Speedway, where he rode in a car with Sprint Cup driver Jeff Burton. Ochocinco added that Palmer is “frustrated” and wants a “fresh start.” Bengals owner Mike Brown repeatedly has said this offseason that he won’t trade Palmer. According to reports in Cincinnati, Palmer recently sold his five-bedroom property on five acres in Indian Hill, Ohio, for approximately $1.9 million.
