Carson Palmer retiring a serious possibility
29 January 2017
Based on conversations with GMs and coaches around the league, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Carson Palmer's retirement is a serious possibility.
Citing sources, RapSheet reports Palmer is "tired, worn down, and trying to see how his body responds" following "the most physically trying season of his career." One prominent GM told RapSheet that Palmer "has played his last down" based on "watching Palmer this year." RapSheet's report hints that 33-year-old Larry Fitzgerald could follow Palmer out the door if Carson indeed calls it quits. Palmer certainly showed signs of breakdown at age 37, but he remains a top-20 NFL quarterback. RapSheet suggests the Cardinals would make a run at Tony Romo or free agent Mike Glennon if Palmer hung up the cleats.
