Citing several sources, ESPN reported Sunday that Cincinnati quarterback Carson Palmer will request a trade and contemplate retiring if the team declines to move him.

Palmer, who is under contract through 2014, threw for 3,970 yards and 26 touchdowns this season. But the Bengals finished 4-12 -- last in the AFC North -- a year after claiming the division title at 10-6. ESPN reported that Palmer is financially secure and willing to retire if necessary.

A Bengals spokesman declined comment, the report said.
