  • Cardinals' Carson Palmer: Will return for 2017
    By RotoWire Staff

    Palmer has confirmed he will for the 2017 season after considering retirement, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports. Palmer considered retirement after what he described as the most physically grueling season of his career. His numbers dipped from 2015 to 2016 but he was still an above average quarterback in what was his age-36 season. He'll look to rebound in 2017 from his 26 touchdown, 14 interception, and 14 fumble performance in 2016.

  • Cardinals coach Bruce Arians anticipates that Palmer will announce his intention to play next season sometime in the near future, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Palmer was reportedly considering retirement after completing what's been described as the most physically grueling campaign of his career, but after news of top wideout Larry Fitzgerald's decision to keep playing, it appears the 37-year-old Palmer will also return for the 2017 season, which will mark his 15th year in the league. After missing one game due to a concussion and dealing with a hamstring issue as well, Palmer finished this past season with 4,233 passing yards, 26 touchdowns, 14 interceptions and five lost fumbles. Those numbers paled in comparison to Palmer's near-MVP 2015 campaign, so assuming the veteran indeed opts to play another season, Palmer will look to rebound and lead Arizona back to the playoffs next term.

  • Cardinals' Carson Palmer: Considering retirement
    By RotoWire Staff

    Palmer is considering retirement and the Cardinals hope to receive a decision on his future by mid-February, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Palmer is currently scheduled to earn $17.5 million next season, but at 37 years old, the veteran is said to be coming off the most physically grueling campaign of his career. Not only did Palmer miss one game due to a concussion, but he also dealt with hamstring soreness this season. Furthermore, after enjoying arguably the best year of his career with 35 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 2015, Palmer posted merely 26 scores and threw 14 picks as the Cardinals failed to make the postseason this time around. While several sources reportedly believe Palmer has played his final snap, the former No. 1 overall pick still has a couple more weeks before Arizona's organization hopes to know his plans, making it a wait-and-see situation regarding his 2017 status.

  • Palmer completed 20 of 38 passes for 255 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception during Sunday's 44-6 throttling of the Rams. Despite losing David Johnson to an unsightly knee injury in the first quarter, Palmer posted a respectable line by game's end, utilizing all weapons at his disposal. As evidence, Palmer targeted 10 different Cardinals, of which seven corralled passes. His favorite on the day (J.J. Nelson) led the way in receiving yards with 75 on a whopping 12 targets, but Larry Fitzgerald, Darren Fells, and Jeremy Ross were beneficiaries of touchdown catches. With playoff hopes dashed weeks ago, Palmer ends his fourth campaign in Arizona with a career-high 597 pass attempts but was unable to approach his career season from 2015, notching a completion percentage of 61.0 to go with 4,233 yards and a 26:14 TD:INT ratio across 15 contests.

  • Palmer completed 16 of 26 passes for 284 yards and one touchdown during Saturday's 34-31 win in Seattle. An extension of head coach Bruce Arians on the field, Palmer alternated between handing the rock to David Johnson and picking on a secondary sans Earl Thomas (tibia) to great effect, boasting a 29:27 pass-to-run ratio by game's end. The preceding did result in a 1-for-9 mark on third down, as evidenced by just three of 14 Cardinals possessions lasting at least six plays. However, the defense was kept honest by Arians' love of the deep ball. In one fell swoop in the waning minutes of the second quarter, J.J. Nelson darted down the middle of the field, sidestepped two Seahawks as he hauled in Palmer's pass, and finished the 80-yard touchdown strike. Outside of three connections with the budding Nelson for 132 yards, Palmer boasted just 6.6 yards per attempt. No matter, with Johnson, Nelson, and the ever-steady Larry Fitzgerald on his side, Palmer has as decent of a chance as any QB to end the season on a high note on Jan. 1 in Los Angeles.
