Cardinals' quarterback Carson Palmer retires after 14 NFL seasons

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer has decided to retire after 14 NFL seasons.

What It Means:

Palmer decided to hang 'em up in an open letter where says he will miss his teammates and the "grind" but believes it is time to call it a career. He played just 7 games in 2017 due to a broken arm. Palmer played 14 seasons in the NFL (7 with Cincinnati, 2 with Oakland, 5 with Arizona) where he played in 182 regular season games but made the playoffs just 3 times (4 games).

Palmer finishes his career 12th All-Time in passing yards (46,247) and touchdowns (294). He owns the second-best passer rating (91.1) in Cardinals' history (Kurt Warner) and finished with a 92-91-1 record in the regular season (1-3 in the postseason).
