Cardinals QB Carson Palmer announces retirement

Cardinals Head Coaching Candidates: Top 10 Replacements For Bruce Arians (If He Retires)

The answer was nearly always the same: "'You just know.'" Palmer said in a letter published by the Cardinals.

Carson Palmer, who missed the final nine games of his 15th National Football League season due to a broken arm, has announced that he's retiring in an open letter to Cardinals fans.

Palmer spent the past five seasons in Arizona and retires owning the franchise records for passing yards (4,671) and passing touchdowns (35) in a season.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer announced his retirement Tuesday in an open letter after 14 seasons with three teams.

"For me that time is now. Why? There wasn't one second that I took it for granted or failed to appreciate what a tremendous privilege it is".




"What I'll never forget are the relationships - not just the awesome teammates and coaches, but all of those countless people at the Bengals, Raiders and Cardinals who work behind the scenes to make this whole thing run".

Quarterback Carson Palmer, the 2002 Heisman Trophy victor and No. 1 pick in the 2003 draft, has announced his retirement after 15 seasons. The Bengals drafted Palmer first overall in the 2003 Draft.

Larry Fitzgerald has still not announced whether or not he will return for another season.

Palmer had two major knee injuries in his career, tearing the ACL in his left knee twice, once in 2006 and again in 2014. Cincinnati president Mike Brown refused, and Palmer didn't show up to training camp in 2011.

After two seasons with the Raiders Palmer was traded to the Cardinals in 2013 and played five seasons with the team.
