Report: Carson Palmer Would Like to Play for the 49ers


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,

    Trade him to the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Carson is an A$$hole, and I love that he thinks he is going to dictate where he gets traded. I will dedicate this season rooting against whatever team this jerk ends up on. Later Carson your Reputation couldn’t have taken anymore of a beating go quit on someone else.

      He is a pompous A$$hole like you say. What do you expect from a kid that went to U$C ( University of Spoiled Children )

    First he will have to be traded or cut. The Raiders would probably hang on to him an extra year before cutting him. So the ball is now in Arizonas court, what are they willing to trade for him ? The 49ers might take him on if he were willing to work for minimum and act as a backup for 2 years. Poor Scott Tolzien- every time it looks like he may move up to the #2 QB someone comes along and threatens to take it away.
    I could see Palmer wanting to come to SF so he can get a ring before he retires. Palmer has always been about money, what kind of money is Palmer seeking.

      To be a backup? WAY less than he is making now.

    Miss Cincinnati at all, Carson? Cincinnati doesn’t miss you.

    Are you crazy?! No way in hell Harbaugh will let your loser az anywhere near his team! The Raiders are the second team you quit on! So NOW you wanna play for the 49ers huh? Puleze! Keep dreamin. You’ve been overrated for a long az time. The creme rises to the top, and the sh! falls to the bottom. How does it smell down there?

      I think he would be a more than capable backup QB for the 49ers, no? Who else do they have?
