Carson Palmer’s arm strength was a major liability or NFL career.

Carson Palmer is an American professional football quarterback for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Bengals first overall in the 2003 NFL Draft. He played collegiate at the University of Southern California and won the Heist man Trophy in 2002. He has been selected to two Pro Bowls. He was born December 27, 1979

Quarterback Carson Palmer has been traded to the Oakland Raiders after a standout career with the Bengals. Palmer is entering his ninth season in 2011 after being the top overall pick by the Bengals in 2003.

The conditional pick in 2013 that the Bengals acquired in Tuesday's Carson Palmer trade will be a first-rounder if the Raiders win one playoff game.
If the Raiders don't get a playoff win, the 2013 pick will be a second-rounder. They get the 2012 first-round pick regardless. Either way, it's an exceedingly high price tag for a quarterback that was a shell of the Pro Bowl player he once was when last seen on the field. In 2010, Palmer threw 26 touchdowns against 20 interceptions and his arm strength was a major liability.
The above screen grab of Carson Palmer’s fantasy football profile was sent in by a reader due to some alarming contradictions that fall within centimeters of one another.
The Raiders are interested in trading for Carson Palmer to fill their quarterback vacancy and have approached the Cincinnati Bengals about the signal caller.
The Raiders lost quarterback Jason Campbell, likely for the season, with a broken collarbone on Sunday against the Browns.
