Do we have evidence of a coming Palmer trade?

Purely speculation on my part, but the rumor was that Cincy's asking price was a fifth-rounder this year and a conditional pick next year, and in the fifth and sixth we've now taken three DBs, two of whom (Richard Sherman in the fifth and Byron Maxwell in the sixth) seem very similar in their strengths and weaknesses.  That's a bit more stockpiling back there than I would have expected.  It could very well make sense on its own terms, but we don't have that many openings in the defensive backfield, so it would seem likely to me that either Sherman or Maxwell would probably end up on the practice squad (LeGree seems more polished to me, and more likely to contribute this season).  It makes me wonder if in fact we have agreed on terms with the Bengals, and if we took one of these DBs for them rather than for ourselves.
