Who would want to trade for him? They'd much rather his contract be paid out by the Bengals so they could offer him a much cheaper contract

i fail to see how it's of any benefit to keep a employee / player around when they obviously don't wanna be there. is it wise to invest millions in a person who's most likely just going to mail it in and not give you 100% because they don't wanna be there ?

If they divorce, who gets custody of Jordan?

If you trade him someone takes on that salary - probably just need to release him

Former Univ. of Georgia great and Bengal David Pollock (who had to retire after a few years in the league due to a broken neck) is on sports talk radio in Atlanta and regularly talks about how cheap and screwed up the Bengals are, with the Palmer mess being the latest episode
