Bengals coach Marvin Lewis confirmed Tuesday that he has no expectations of quarterback Carson Palmer reporting to Bengals camp. “Carson has retired,” said Lewis, who unlike owner Mike Brown has already turned the page.
Lewis confirmed that the Bengals will pursue a veteran quarterback to compete with rookie Andy Dalton and Jordan Palmer. Dalton will open camp as Cincinnati’s starter. Brown said he will not reward Carson with a trade if he walks away from his contract.
