Cardinals' quarterback Carson Palmer retires after 14 National Football League seasons

Palmer won the 2002 Heisman Trophy at USC, then played 15 years in the National Football League for the Cincinnati Bengals, Oakland Raiders and Arizona Cardinals. Arizona posted it on the team's Twitter page.

"For me that time is now. Why? The answer was nearly always the same: You just know", Palmer wrote.

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.

Palmer, 38, was selected by the Cincinnati Bengals with the first overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft, having won the Heisman Trophy at USC.


"What I'll never forget are the relationships - not just the unbelievable 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". "There wasn't one second that I took for granted or failed to appreciate what a tremendous privilege it is".

Palmer finishes his career 12th All-Time in passing yards (46,247) and touchdowns (294). In 2015, he started all 16 games and Arizona was 13-3, advancing to the NFC Championship game, where it lost to the Panthers. He spent the past five years with the Cardinals where he returned to Pro Bowl form.

Larry Fitzgerald has still not announced whether or not he will return for another season. Despite being the Heisman Trophy victor in 2002 and the top pick, the Bengals opted to sit Palmer for his entire rookie year, as he learned from the coaches and veteran quarterback Jon Kitna. Palmer finished the 2011 season in Oakland and played there in 2012 before the Raiders traded him to the Cardinals in April 2013.
