(on nfl.com - Boomer Esiason commenting on the Bengals QB situation...) "Esiason said during a conference call for TXN Sports that the Bengals will likely draft Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert with the No. 4 pick in this month's draft..." "In my estimation, he (Palmer) has absolutely checked out of the Cincinnati hotel," Esiason said. "He is gone, he is out of there, he does not want to play there anymore. And I can completely sympathize with where he's coming from." "I have to completely sympathize with Blaine Gabbert if he does get drafted by the Bengals," Esiason said. "I do believe he would make a great fit there, but as Cris and I both know, he is going to have to be a better player than advertised in order to be successful there because of the lack of support."
