Quarterback Carson Palmer seems unwilling to restructure his contract with the Oakland Raiders, which could cause the team to release him, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday.
Reports lately have suggested Palmer and the Raiders would work out a deal, but that may not be the case.
Palmer is scheduled to make $13 million in base salary in 2013.
If Palmer, 33, and the Raiders cannot reach agreement on a restructured deal that is more cap-friendly, the Raiders would have to decide whether to keep him under the present terms of the contract or release him.
Palmer passed for 4,018 yards with 22 touchdowns and 14 interceptions last season.
Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has said that Terrelle Pryor will get a chance to compete for the starting position.
