Carson Palmer and the Cincinnati Bengals were in a stalemate with Palmer refusing to play and the Bengals refusing to trade him, until Cincinnati was offered a first round pick in 2012 and second round pick in 2013.

Palmer, who had demanded a trade out of Cincinnati saying he would retire before suiting up again for the Bengals, made good on his threat and did not report to training camp.
The Bengals had refused to give into Palmer's demand until Tuesday when they were unable to turn down a first round pick in the 2012 NFL draft and a second round pick in 2013.
In place of Palmer, rookie quarterback Andy Dalton has gone 118 of 189 for 1,311 yards and seven touchdowns in his first five NFL games.
