Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer announces his retirement

Cardinals Head Coaching Candidates: Top 10 Replacements For Bruce Arians (If He Retires) Bruce Arians becomes winningest Cardinals coach, other player milestones met

Palmer made a decision 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.

"What I'll never forget are the relationships - not just the fantastic 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". Palmer began to go through with his threat, and sat out the first six games of the season before the Bengals traded him to the Oakland Raiders.

While Palmer has thrown for Hall-of-Fame-esque numbers in his career, his 15 years were marred by major injuries, disagreements with management and playing for bad teams.

In an open letter, Palmer announced he is walking away from the National Football League after 15 years.

Palmer, who turned 38 last week, played the last five seasons of his 15-year career with the Arizona Cardinals, leading them to two postseason appearances in a late-career resurgence under head coach Bruce Arians, who announced his retirement a day earlier. He was named to the Pro Bowl three times.

Palmer ends his career 12th on the all-time rankings with 294 touchdown passes. "There wasn't one second that I took it for granted or failed to appreciate what a tremendous privilege it is". Palmer's final season was limited to seven games after he broke his arm in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams in London in October.

When I entered the league, I was a 23-year old kid.
