Update: Carson Palmer’s Agent Releases Statement
“Because of the lack of success that Carson and the Bengals have experienced together, Carson strongly feels that a separation between him and the Bengals would be in the best interest of both parties.”
Those words were echoed today by Carson Palmer’s agent David Dunn in what seems like a retaliation statement following Mike Browns attempt to defuse the situation earlier in the day. This still could still just be posturing by Palmer, but it seems apparent that things are not right and Carson and his agent are ready to go to war. This is getting extremely ugly and is slowly becoming one of the worst times in recent Bengals history.
Chad Ochocinco decided to chime in on the situation by saying on his Twitter account “@Bengals Not sure who runs this site but tell management I’m gonna start whooping ass if we don’t get it together, let’s go damit! #WhoDey”
“I’d do anything to play for someone like Rex Ryan or anyone who has that type of mentality.” Chad & T.O.
This could just be Chad being Chad in an attempt to further his chances of leaving the team or maybe he is really trying to help bring to light all the issues with the team. Either way this team is sinking quickly and an ugly storm cloud is hovering above this franchise as Mike Brown is taking it to a new all time low.
