We have a special version of the Shutdown Corner podcast today, devoted exclusively to the Carson Palmer trade.
First, we talk to Charles Davis of the NFL Network. Charles is one of the Network's brightest minds, and he gives us his take on what Palmer has left in the tank, why the deal seems quintessentially "Raider-esque,", and gives us a bonus scouting report on Raiders rookie receiver Denarius Moore from Tennessee (Charles' own alma mater).
Then, we bring on Greg Cosell of NFL Films and ESPN's NFL Matchup. You know Greg from his weekly X-and-O podcasts with us, but we get a bonus round from him as he explains the possible challenges of fitting the 2011 version of Palmer in a three-digit vertical offense, why the 2005-2007 version of Palmer was his favorite quarterback to watch, and how quarterback and team might meet each other halfway strategically.
And to conclude the podcast, we go straight to a closer source — Raiders cornerback Stanford Routt. Stanford talks to us about what Jason Campbell brought to the team, his own recollections of Palmer from previous Bengals-Raiders games, what Hue Jackson has brought to the organization (especially after Al Davis' passing), and where things stand with the Raiders in an overall sense.
