Carson Palmer came to the Cincinnati Bengals as a highly touted rookie out of the University of Southern California. So far, he has lived up to that hype. He has developed over the years into one of the better young quarterbacks in the National Football League. Already, he has made some big plays and important passes. Who has been his favorite receiver though?
Through the 2009 season, here is a list of the top five receivers based on how many touchdown passes thrown to them by Carson Palmer.
Chad Ochocinco – 40
T.J. Houshmandzadeh – 34
Chris Henry – 19
Jeremi Johnson – 5
Laveranues Coles – 5
That’s an amazing swing in number of touchdown passes from number one and two on the list and the fact that number four and five are tied at just five. It really shows how much the Cincinnati offense has focused on Ochocinco and Houshmandzadeh in recent years.
