Carson Palmer told the Bengals after last season that he would retire if they didn't trade him. The Bengals have maintained they will not trade Palmer, and so far the 31-year-old has been true to his word. He was placed on a reserve list when he didn't report to camp, but he apparently hasn't made his retirement official with the NFL.
Jordan Palmer, 27, re-signed with the team in July, accepting his restricted free-agency tender. The contract isn't guaranteed, and he can be cut at any time.
