In an appearance on the “Brother From Another Show”, Carson said, “I think Joe’s gonna sit back after this game, win or lose and be like ‘man, am I gonna re-sign with this team?'”

He added, “Are they willing to do what it takes to continuously build to get back to the next Super Bowl?…….. How are they willing to structure salary cap wise to be able to afford me, but to also be able to afford Ja’Marr Chase when he comes up or Tee Higgins or maybe even re-do this offensive line.'”

Is Carson Palmer the one to suggest Joe Burrow?

Palmer spent eight seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals from 2003 to 2010. Like Joe Burrow, the Bengals drafted Palmer as first overall in the first round of the NFL Draft. Additionally, during his eight years with the Bengals, he led them twice to the NFL playoffs. Nonetheless, he asked for a trade, in 2010 and was dealt to the Oakland Raiders.
