Carson Palmer noncommittal on 2017 return
30 January 2017
Carson Palmer indicated that he is hopeful but not committed to playing football in 2017 in a text message to Arizona Central's Dan Bickley.
"I guess nothing is ever official until it is, but I'd like to play if my body responds the way I hope," Palmer texted Bickley. Palmer essentially confirmed an NFL Network report via the text message after Ian Rapoport reported Palmer feels "tired, worn down, and trying to see how his body responds" after "the most physically trying season of his career." The Cardinals are hoping to get an answer from Palmer by mid-February so that they can adjust their offseason approach accordingly. Palmer turned 37 in December.
