We also find ourselves rather suddenly in position of being able to receive real value for Carson that can measurably improve our team, which is performing well and is showing real promise for this year and years to come," he said in a statement. "When this opportunity arose, we felt we could not let it pass and needed to take a step forward with the football team if we could." The Raiders (4-2) became desperate for a quarterback after Campbell broke his collarbone during a win over the Browns on Sunday. Campbell had surgery Monday and was expected to miss at least six weeks, leaving the Raiders with only Kyle Boller and Terrelle Pryor on the roster. Jacksons mantra all season has been "the time is now," and he backed that up by dealing for Palmer. The Raiders also renegotiated Palmers contract, giving him a US$2.5-million guaranteed deal for the rest of this season, $12.5 million with $5 million guaranteed in 2012, $13 million in 2013 and $15 million in 2014. Palmer had been working out in Southern California,, trying to stay in shape and throwing to former teammate T. Wade Baldwin Jersey. J. Houshmandzadeh and high school players. He hoped the work would pay off with another chance in the NFL, but he did not know. "There was a number of times that there were teams approaching the Bengals and it didnt work out, so it was a very difficult time," Palmer said. "I didnt know what was going to happen. I didnt know what was around the next turn, the next week, the next month. So there was a lot of confusion and I really didnt know what was next." Palmer said it will take some time to learn the offence, build chemistry with his receivers and get back into football shape. Oakland hosts Kansas City on Sunday but Jackson would not say whether Palmer would start. While Palmer has not played or practised since last season, he has a history with Jackson, who was his offensive co-ordinator for two years at USC and the wide receivers coach for three seasons in Cincinnati. Jackson was with the Bengals when Palmer had his best season in 2005 when he threw for 3,836 yards with 32 touchdown passes and a 101.1 rating while leading the team to an AFC North title. Palmer tore up his left knee during a playoff loss to Pittsburgh that season. He came back and had two solid seasons before partially tearing a ligament and tendon in his passing elbow during the 2008 season. He has not been an elite quarterback since, despite getting back to the playoffs in 2009. Palmer said he is completely healthy now. Over the past two years, Palmer completed 61.2 per cent of his passes for 7,064 yards, 47 touchdowns, 33 interceptions and a passer rating of 82.9 while posting a 14-18 record. Those numbers are comparable to what Campbell has done since the start of the 2009 season. But the Raiders were not willing to trust their playoff chances with Boller, who had not started a game since 2009 and had lost his previous 10 starts since October 2007, or Pryor, a project who will need time before he can be an NFL quarterback. This is the second trade the Raiders have made since Davis death. They dealt last week for former No. 4 overall pick in 2009, linebacker Aaron Curry from Seattle. The trade leaves the Raiders with picks only in the fifth and sixth rounds in next years draft. They traded their second-rounder during Aprils draft to New England for the picks to draft offensive lineman Joe Barksdale and running back Taiwan Jones. They used their third-rounder to take Pryor in the supplemental draft in August. They traded their fourth-rounder in 2010 to get Campbell and the seventh-rounder for Curry. "I know a lot of people think weve mortgaged the future of the organization," Jackson said. "I dont see it that way. I mean, I dont think you ever mortgage the future of an organization when youre putting a real big-time franchise quarterback on your team." Oakland is expecting to get compensatory picks after losing Nnamdi Asomugha, Zach Miller, Robert Gallery, Thomas Howard and Bruce Gradkowski in free agency.
