The Raiders confirmed through Twitter just after Tuesday's 1 p.m. NFL trade deadline that they have acquired quarterback Carson Palmer from the Cincinnati Bengals.
While no details of the trade were disclosed on the post, it had been reported earlier in the morning that the Raiders were going to send the Bengals a 2012 first-round pick and another future conditional pick. The story was first reported by FoxSports' Jay Glazer.
Palmer has not played this season, opting to retire before the season after failing to negotiate a new contract with the Bengals.
The Raiders had been in search of another quarterback to add to their roster since starter Jason Campbell suffered a broken collarbone in Sunday's victory over the Cleveland Browns.
The Bengals had been adamant that they wouldn't trade Palmer, who hasn't played since the end of last season. The franchise quarterback decided he wouldn't play another season with Cincinnati, even though his contract runs through the 2014 season.
But owner Mike Brown reversed course when the Raiders were willing to send the first-round pick and conditional pick to Cincinnati.
More on this story as it develops.
