Oakland Raiders Rumors: Carson Palmer Not Set In Stone As Quarterback Of The Future

The Oakland Raiders made a huge move this past season when they acquired Carson Palmer for two quality draft picks. When healthy and put in the right situation, Palmer still has the capability of being one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL. And despite the recent rumors that the veteran quarterback would have the job regardless of what happened in the offseason, that may not be true, according to new general manager Reggie McKenzie.

This is certainly something to keep an eye on in the coming months. The Raiders have very few draft picks to work with in 2012 and the ones they do have will not come into play until the later rounds. Could the team be looking at a potential free agent option? Could they try and trade up to land a second or third round quarterback? Perhaps the new GM isn't too happy with Palmer's performance this past season and wants to light a fire under his butt? It could be any of these three things, honestly, and there are bound to be even more rumors like this in the coming weeks.

Buckle up, Raiders fans. This may turn into a bumpy ride.
