ESPN: Bengals QB Carson Palmer will be traded to Raiders

Carson Palmer, who’s sat out the entire 2011 campaign in semi-retirement to date after vowing to never again play for the Bengals, will head to Oakland for a 2012 first-round draft pick and a 2013 selection that could escalate to a first-rounder. “This deal is done,” said ESPN’s Chris Mortensen on SportsCenter Tuesday morning.

The deal comes just hours before the NFL’s trade deadline expires at 4 p.m. ET.
