For the past few years, the Cardinals have been trying to squeeze as much out of Carson Palmer’s fading career as they could. Well after the 2017 season, Palmer’s time in the NFL and with Arizona finally came to a close as the 38-year-old quarterback announced his retirement in January.
With Palmer retiring, the Cardinals now have no quarterbacks under contract for the 2018 season. Blaine Gabbert and Drew Stanton both started in a few games for Arizona last year and each will now be unrestricted free-agents this offseason, along with Matt Barkley.
The Cardinals could be a good situation for Case Keenum to land in. Talented Arizona running back David Johnson will be able to take a lot of the pressure off of Keenum and not make him feel like he has to do too much in the offense.
