Palmer working out with Houshmandzadeh

Carson Palmer is staying in football shape and has been throwing regularly to former Bengals teammate T.J. Houshmandzadeh, according to a source.

Palmer has no plans to report to the Bengals or to play for the team again, but he hasn’t closed the door on playing football.

He is still seeking a trade, though he knows the likelihood of owner Mike Brown dealing him is bleak. Should rookie Andy Dalton develop to the point where the Bengals are ready to deal Palmer to add more pieces, perhaps that expedites the process.

Regardless, on the off chance that Brown does somehow have a change of heart before next month’s trade deadline, Palmer will be ready. Palmer is due to make $11.5 million this season and roughly $50 million over the duration of his contract.

The Seahawks, 49ers and Dolphins are among the teams that approached the Bengals about trading for Palmer before the lockout, according to league sources.
