The Arizona Cardinals should acquire Carson Palmer and then draft Matt Barkley

Carson Palmer may soon be shaking hands with Cardinals fans.

Two weeks after releasing Kevin Kolb, the Arizona Cardinals are reportedly interested in acquiring Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer for a “conditional” pick.

The 33-year-old Palmer, who the Cincinnati Bengals took first overall out of the University of Southern California in 2003, has connected on 189 scores, against 130 picks, for 29,465 yards since debuting as a professional.

Palmer, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, performed well last autumn in “The Town” and passed for 22 touchdowns, in comparison to 14 interceptions, for 4,018 yards.

Teaming with standout wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, the 6-foot-5, 235 pound Palmer could flourish under center in the Valley of the Sun.

Ideally for Arizona and their fans, the Cardinals will obtain Palmer and take sullied Trojan Matt Barkley with the seventh pick in next month’s draft.

Palmer remains a very productive signal-caller and he could serve as an ideal mentor to the 22-year-old Barkley.

After going a porous 5-11 in 2012, for the betterment of the present and future, the Arizona Cardinals should look to employ both Carson Palmer and Matt Barkley this spring.
