Carson Palmer trade to Arizona Cardinals hits snag, but talks still going on

New, comments

Like any good story, there appears to be a little conflict before the inevitable conclusion.

The whole world seems to believe it is a foregone conclusion that quarterback Carson Palmer will be traded from the Oakland Raiders to the Arizona Cardinals. Peter King calls it "inevitable." Palmer reportedly "prefers" Arizona. However, the trade still has not been finalized, and like all good stories, there has been a snag of some sort.

According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the trade talks "hit a snag" and that it was "unsure" whether or not the two parties would be able to overcome them. While it was not said what exactly that snag is, you have to imagine that it has to do with the restructuring of Palmer's contract that is a requirement for the Cardinals to make the deal.

But all is not lost. Talks are still going on, according to La Canfora. They are still "deep in talks" and "pushing towards a deal."

Sounds like everyone will come to their senses and an agreement will happen soon enough. Stay tuned.
