This is what I've been reading about.http://mynorthwest.com/?nid=275&sid=473010
In a nut shell, The Bengals have already agreed to trade Carson Palmer to Seattle. They can't execute the trade with out a CBA.
Interesting, but it all just sounds like conjecture. Besides, are we really to believe:
1. That the Bengals owner Mike Brown is really going to cave to a player's demands? He has a history of stubbornness here.
2. That the Seahawks brass are will to trade away a high 2012 pick for a 31 year old QB with declining numbers?
3. If we were investing heavily in a QB (Palmer will command a 1st round pick likely) why did we draft run-blocking O-linemen? The recipe for "new" QBs is have a solid run attack and let them focus on play action passes to big WRs and TEs. It kind of sounds more like we're looking for a backup to Whitehurst and gearing for a 1st round QB pick in 2012 than a veteran player.
I could, and likely am, completely wrong though. I haven't been able to guess any of the Seahawks moves (with the exception of Okung last year) with any success. That's probably a good thing.
