Cardinals' quarterback Carson Palmer retires after 14 National Football League seasons

In 182 regular-season games played, Palmer averaged 254.1 yards per contest, completed 62.5 percent of his passes and accrued 294 touchdowns versus 187 interceptions for an 87.9 quarterback rating.

The Cardinals' offseason of change won't be limited to their head coaching position.

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

"For me that time is now. Why?" Palmer played 14 seasons in the National Football League (7 with Cincinnati, 2 with Oakland, 5 with Arizona) where he played in 182 regular season games but made the playoffs just 3 times (4 games). "There wasn't one second that I took it for granted or failed to appreciate what a tremendous privilege it is". I know for sure it will center around the five most important people in my life - my wife Shean and our four awesome kids.

Capers spent nine years running the Packers' defense, though he hasn't had a top-10 unit since 2010. Thompson has been the GM since 2005 when he made Aaron Rodgers his first pick as the head man.

Palmer went 38-21-1 in Arizona, which included leading the Cardinals to a 13-3 record and a spot in the NFC Championship Game during an MVP-caliber 2015 season. "Quite simply, I just know". Palmer's final season was limited to seven games after he broke his arm in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams in London in October.

Palmer threatened to retire from the Cincinnati Bengals in 2011 after requesting a trade that wasn't immediately granted.

Palmer spent two seasons with the Raiders before being traded to Arizona in 2013.

Palmer had two major knee injuries in his career, tearing the ACL in his left knee twice, once in 2006 and again in 2014.
