Carson Palmer Visited Arizona Cardinals Executives Monday Night

The Oakland Raiders appear poised to deal quarterback Carson Palmer to the Arizona Cardinals after completing a deal to acquire Matt Flynn from the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, and all sides are beginning to take the necessary steps to make the potential deal a reality.

Palmer visited the Cardinals in Phoenix on Monday night to meet with the team executives and familiarize himself with the organization.

Per Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic:

The gesture seems to give every indication that the Cardinals are serious about adding Palmer and taking the $13 million salary for 2013 off of the Raiders hands. Of course, for Palmer to join the Cardinals, he would have to be willing to take a pay cut. There have been rumblings that Palmer’s 2013 salary for the Cardinals could fall in the $6 to $8 million per year range.

For the Cardinals to acquire Palmer, they would need to part ways with a late-round pick.

Palmer put up some impressive numbers last season in a lackluster Raiders offense, so the move could end up working out for the Cardinals who have been searching for a reliable signal-caller since Kurt Warner hung up his cleats.
