Carson Palmer wants to play for the 49ers? Yes, you read that right.
USA Today is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers are one of two teams on Carson Palmer’s list of preferred destinations, should he be cut by the Raiders, which is likely. The other team is the Arizona Cardinals, the 49ers’ division rivals.
An earlier reported indicated that Palmer would rather be a backup for a contending team than start for the Raiders and take a pay cut, and if he were to find his way to San Francisco, he would be second-in-line to Colin Kaepernick.
Could Palmer wind up on the other side of the Bay? Stay tuned, this is going to get interesting,
