Cardinals QB Carson Palmer on retirement: 'I just know'

"Over the years, I've had teammates who chose to hang it up and I would ask them how they knew it was time to walk away". Those are details that I know fade with time. 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.

Carson Palmer's NFL career is over after 15 years in the league with three teams.

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.

Palmer hangs up his cleats just one day after Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians walked away from the game.

Minimum wage raises coming to 18 states on New Year's Day
The year 2018 will be the 20th anniversary of the legislation that saw the introduction of the minimum wage. The minimum wage for employees of smaller businesses with fewer than 11 employees will be $12/hour.

Palmer's career, in essence, ended Week 7 in London, when he broke his left arm against the Los Angeles Rams. He owns the second-best passer rating (91.1) in Cardinals' history (Kurt Warner) and finished with a 92-91-1 record in the regular season (1-3 in the postseason).

His best season came in 2015, when he passed for 4,671 yards and 35 touchdowns and led the Cardinals to the NFC Championship game against Carolina.

The 39-year-old Bettcher served under Arians as outside linebackers coach for the Indianapolis Colts in 2012, and he took on the same role in Arizona in 2013 when Arians became the head coach in Arizona.

Palmer finishes his career 12th All-Time in passing yards (46,247) and touchdowns (294). But Johnson and Palmer's injuries as well as other key injuries on offense were crushing.
