I know for sure it will center around the five most important people in my life - my wife Shean and our four awesome kids.
"Over the years, I've had teammates who chose to hang it up and I would ask them how they knew when it was time to walk away", Palmer wrote. The answer was nearly always the same: "'You just know.'" Palmer said in a letter published by the Cardinals.
"For me, that time is now".
"What I'll never forget are the relationships - not just the incredible teammates and coaches, but all of those countless people at the Bengals, Raiders and Cardinals who work behind the scenes to make this whole thing run". In 2017, Palmer appeared in seven games after breaking his left arm. Veterans Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert, who split starting duties after Palmer was injured, are both scheduled to become free agents. That was the furthest he went in the postseason.

He added: "At this very hard time our heartfelt sympathies go out to the families and friends of our fallen and wounded brothers". He says Golin "served our nation with courage and distinction, and his death is a loss that will be felt across New Jersey".
In five years with the Cardinals, he threw for 16,782 yards, 105 touchdowns and 57 interceptions. He's 12th in career passing yards, 14th in pass attempts, 11th in completions and 12th in touchdown passes.
Palmer threatened to retire from the Cincinnati Bengals in 2011 after requesting a trade that wasn't immediately granted. The Bengals drafted Palmer first overall in the 2003 Draft.
Palmer spent two seasons with the Raiders before being traded to Arizona in 2013. He finishes his career 12th on the all-time passing touchdowns list for National Football League quarterbacks (294 TD's) and 12th on the all-time passing yards list (46,247 yards). But Johnson and Palmer's injuries as well as other key injuries on offense were crushing. Otherwise, he was relatively durable.
