We’ve been reporting on this blog for what seems an age the possibility that Carson Palmer could end up being the next starting quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks. It could also end up being Matt Hasselbeck, Charlie Whitehurst or even Kevin Kolb – such is the situation. Even so, the Bengals and Seahawks have discussed the matter and we’ll hopefully have a conclusion to this tedious saga by next week when the league re-opens for business.
Palmer has remained tight-lipped in recent weeks on his future, choosing to stay out of the media as the lockout dragged on. This weekend he’s been competing in a celebrity golf tournament in Tahoe, Nevada and declined to comment to the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Joe Reedy on his future.
No worries, leave it to a member of the 12th man to cut to the chase and ask a question most Seahawks fans would like to know.
Twenty-year-old Sean Lewandowski, who works for the Reno Indoor Football team, was also in Tahoe for the competition and had the opportunity to spoil a good walk with some golf alongside Palmer. Quite rightly, he had to know whether the quarterback had any interest in joining the Seahawks as we’ve been reporting he has on this website. Sean was kind enough to raise my attention to this meeting via Twitter.
“I Walked 18 holes with Carson Palmer today & he said “It’d be nice” if he was #Seahawk QB”
“He was very open to the idea, I think deep down it’s what he wants.”
Of course, this doesn’t offer any further proof that a deal is close and that’s not the point of this blog post. However, kudos to Sean for asking the question and also getting this photograph with the man himself (Palmer also signed his Seahawks cap):
