Quarterback Carson Palmer released a letter announcing his retirement from football on Tuesday. He played 15 seasons in the NFL and has been with the Cardinals for the past five years. Palmer spent 8 years in Cincinnati and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2005 and 2006. He then spent two years with the Raiders before moving to the Cardinals, where he reached the playoffs in 2014 and 2015. His 2017 season was cut short by a broken left arm, suffered in a 33-0 loss to the Rams in Week 7. Palmer’s retirement comes just two days after the Cardinals’ head coach Bruce Arians retired after Arizona beat the Seahawks to finish 8-8 on the season.
