Palmer has four years and $50 million left on his contract and is due to make $11.5 million next season. His agent, David Dunn, is saying that Palmer isn’t just unhappy with the 4-12 record the team ended up with last season, “but how the team has performed over his eight-year tenure in Cincinnati,” the Enquirer reports.
In his time with the Bengals, Palmer has gone 46-51.
“Because of the lack of success that Carson and the Bengals have experienced together, Carson strongly feels that a separation between him and the Bengals would be in the best interest of both parties,” Dunn said, according to the paper.
Brown noted that Palmer did not share any specifics about what was bothering him at the meeting.
