(FOX19) - Several media outlets are reporting that the Miami Dolphins are interested in former Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer.

Rich Smith of AllSportsIntel tweeted Tuesday, "Just received a call that the Miami Dolphins are talking to the Cincinnati Bengals about QB Carson Palmer."

Palmer said earlier this year that he wanted to be traded, or he would retire. The Bengals did not trade him and he retired. The Bengals drafted quarterback Andy Dalton in the 2011 NFL Draft.

The struggling Chad Henne is currently starting for the Dolphins.

Palmer's name has also been connected to the winless Indianapolis Colts, since Peyton Manning is hurt and could be out for the season. However, it's unlikely that Indianapolis would trade a first or second round draft pick to get him.
