  • Arizona gets Palmer for conditional '14 pick

    Cardinals acquired QB Carson Palmer and a 2013 seventh-round pick from the Raiders in exchange for a 2013 sixth-round pick and a conditional seventh-round pick in 2014.
    In this year's draft, Oakland gets a 43-spot jump from pick No. 219 to 176. The Raiders get the 2014 pick only if Palmer starts 13 games in 2013. In other words, it's just short of a giveaway. Palmer has agreed to a new two-year, $16 million contract with $10 million guaranteed. It locks him in as the 2013 starter, but includes no guaranteed money beyond this season. In theory, Palmer is a good fit for Bruce Arians' vertical attack, but his nonexistent mobility will be a liability behind one of the league's worst offensive lines. The Cardinals will now almost certainly spend the No. 7 pick on a tackle. Larry Fitzgerald will be the best receiver he's ever thrown to, but Palmer is going to have a hard time earning QB1 status in fantasy leagues. The 33-year-old Palmer's desire is a question mark after he essentially quit on two teams in three years.
