Cardinals QB Carson Palmer announces retirement

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer announced his retirement Tuesday in a letter after 15 seasons in the NFL.

“Over the years, I’ve had teammates who decided to hang it up and I would ask them how they knew it was time to walk away. The answer was almost always the same: you just know,” Palmer said in the letter.

Palmer was reduced to just seven games this season after breaking his left arm. He was placed on injured reserve with nine touchdowns and seven interceptions this season.

With Palmer opting to retire, and Bruce Arians retiring as head coach, the Cardinals could be ready to usher in a new era. Veteran wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has yet to announce his decision for next season, but the end of his career could be just around the corner as well.

“Marvin Lewis has been an important member of the Cincinnati community and the Bengals family for the past 15 years, and we are happy to have reached this agreement,” Bengals president Mike Brown said in a statement. “Marvin has made significant contributions during his time here. While recently we have fallen short of our expectations, we have full confidence in Marvin to re-establish winning football in 2018.”

The Bengals won their last two games this season, but still finished 7-9 — third in the AFC North.

“My family and I are very grateful for the opportunity to stay in Cincinnati and continue my career with the Bengals,” Lewis said. “My job is to win a World Championship. We have a talented roster full of veteran leaders and emerging young stars, and I am committed to making the necessary improvements to put this team in the best position to win.”

Lewis is 0-7 in the postseason during his career as Bengals head coach.
