Sports Illustrated writer Jim Trotter ran into disgruntled Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer at the Drew Brees’ Cox Celebrity Golf Classic in San Diego last week, so naturally Trotter wanted to ask Palmer about his current relationship with the Bengals, who have steadfastly refused to honor Palmer’s request to be traded from the dysfunctional franchise. Palmer reportedly said nothing to Trotter beyond the assertion that he’s still on “media hiatus.”
Palmer can’t be traded during the current lockout, so his comments would serve little purpose. Still, it would have been nice to hear his opinions on Chad “Mr. One and Half Seconds” Ochocinco. That handle refers, of course, to how long he lasted during his professional bullriding debut. Get your minds out of the gutter, people.
