Cardinals' Carson Palmer announces retirement in open letter to fans

Cardinals' Carson Palmer announces retirement in open letter to fans

"It's been fantastic, some of the best (years) of his career, some of the best of my career", Arians said of Palmer's time in Arizona.

The 65-year-old Thompson has been the team's GM since 2005.

The Cardinals now join the list of organizations looking for new leadership.

The Arizona Cardinals hired him nearly immediately as the Colts' 2012 season concluded.

Arians also served as a collegiate head coach from 1983-88, leading the Temple Owls.

Palmer turned 38 last week, and goes into the 2018 season with a $20.6 million cap hit, or the Cardinals could release him and save $14 million.

A Series of Unfortunate Events hits Netflix on 30 March. Sounds like an absolute barrel of laughs. It's pretty brief, but we get the gist.

Long-time receivers coach Tyke Tolbert and special teams coordinator Brock Olivo also were let go.

Fitzgerald may be back next season, after all he is just 389 yards away from Terrell Owens in the #2 spot, but it would be completely understandable if he were to hang up his cleats, especially if there was to be a new head coach, though Fitzgerald seemed hopeful that nothing would change.

Palmer announced his retirement from the National Football League on Tuesday, the Cardinals' official site reports.

The Cincinnati Bengals could be another, with the long-serving Marvin Lewis out of contract, but Hue Jackson is expected to remain with Cleveland despite their 0-16 season and the Denver Broncos have assured Vance Joseph his job is safe. We're gonna miss him here in the Valley. He may not want to start with a young quarterback.

The 68-year-old Pees has served on coach John Harbaugh's staff since 2010, working as linebackers coach before being elevated to defensive coordinator after Chuck Pagano departed to become the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts in 2012.

Del Rio announced his own exit at his post-match press conference after his team were hammered 30-10 by the Los Angeles Chargers to conclude a season which began with Super Bowl aspirations but ended outside the play-offs with a 6-10 record.
