This will be the Dawgs’ seventh game at Safeco, as they played two games there in 2009, and will mark the first time the Huskies have taken on the Bruins at the big-league field.

The much-rumored trade between the Cincinnati Bengals and New York Giants involving linebacker Keith Rivers has become a reality.

The Bengals traded the former USC star for a fifth-round draft pick, ending a four-year stint in Cincinnati, on the sidelines frequently with injuries.

Rivers missed all of last season recovering from surgery on his right wrist.

He’s played in only 35 games out of a possible 64 in four seasons.

Cincinnati also agreed to a deal with 33-year-old cornerback Terence Newman, an unrestricted free agent from the Dallas Cowboys.

The Bengals have waived cornerback Rico Murray, who has signed on several ocassions as an emergency player when injuries crop up in the secondary.

The St. Louis Rams and the Miami Dolphins desparately wanted Jeff Fisher to become the head coach of their respective football teams.

But only one could win and the winner is, Sam Bradford and the Rams.

Fisher sat out the 2011 season after 17 seasons with the Tennessee Titans franchise.

The 53-year-old Fisher, who played college football at USC, was by far the most coveted head coaching candidate available this offseason.

His career with the Titans was very successful with a 142-120 record and a Super Bowl XXXIV matchup against the Rams after the 1999 season which Tennessee lost lost 23-16 and fell 1 yard short of forcing overtime.

The Titans won three division titles and made six playoff appearances under Fisher.

Fisher stepped down last offseason as the NFL’s dean of coaches, saying that he simply needed a break.

Fisher probably liked the Rams situation better than the Dolphins due to the fact that Bradford is the established number-1 QB, they have the #2 pick in the upcoming draft and plenty of salary cap room.

Bengals finally unload unhappy Palmer; Raiders offer too good to pass on


Carson Palmer (file photo)

After walking out on the Cincinnati Bengals when the 2010 season ended, Carson Palmer knew after demanding a trade or not play and retire demand that he could never walk back into the locker room and face his teammates. Furthermore, he had resigned himself to the fact that the team would never trade him.

Bengals owner Mike Brown said that he would deal with Palmer in his timetable and not the player and his agent’s. Well, Brown waited 10 months, the lockout, preseason and the first six games of the season to finally dump Palmer which is good for everybody.

Palmer received the message on Tuesday morning that he had been traded to the Oakland Raiders to replace the injured Jason Campbell.

The Raiders gave the Bengals in return, a 2012 first-round pick and a conditional second-rounder in 2012 that can become another first if Oakland makes it to the AFC title game in either of the next two years.

Head coach Hue Jackson knows Palmer well, having coached him at USC and with the Bengals while as an assistant coach.

The Raiders, just like the Bengals are 4-2, became quite desperate for a quarterback after Campbell broke his collarbone in Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Browns. Campbell had surgery on Monday and will miss at least six weeks, which left the Raiders with erratic Kyle Boller and the unproven Terrelle Pryor.

The Raiders immediately re-worked Palmer’s contract, giving him a $2.5 million guaranteed deal for the rest of the season, $12.5 million with $5 million guaranteed in 2012, $13 million in 2013 and $15 million in 2014.

Mike Brown and the Bengals organization had a tough stance towards trading Palmer who wanted out of the losing organization which has had two winning season in the past 20 years. They did not want to reward Palmer for holding out and for demanding his way.

But the Bengals management knew that the Raiders offer was too good to pass on; Cincinnati fans were upset that Palmer walked out and quit and there were some players who did not want to be identified during the preseason, did not want Palmer to return. Also, the big picture is that rookie quarterback Andy Dalton has played well with the young offensive receivers. So the trade was a no-brainer.

In the end, Palmer gets to play in his homestate of California and the Bengals get two draft choices that can help them build a consistent winner.
