Cardinals sign QB Carson Palmer to three-year extension

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher
The Arizona Cardinals have signed quarterback Carson Palmer to a three-year extension. The extension will now run through the 2017 season.
Palmer will reportedly make $50 million from the extension, according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora. It is not clear how much guaranteed money is part of this new deal.
He would have been a free agent if no agreement would have been reached. The Cardinals did not want to risk losing Palmer, so they agreed to a contract with the signal-caller.
Palmer was having a good season, before being placed on injured reserve with a right shoulder injury. In fact, with the Cardinals, he has had the best seasons of his career since his early years with the Cincinnati Bengals.

“Carson has played at an incredibly high level and has been a huge part of the team’s success,” general manager Steve Keim said in a statement. “When you combine his on-field performance with the leadership, stability and professionalism he brings to our team, there was no question that we wanted to extend the relationship and we are excited he felt the same way.”
This season, Palmer went 6-0 before his injury. In 22 games after being acquired in a trade with the Oakland Raiders, he has gone 16-6. 

In 2014, he has gone 141 of 224 for 1,626 yards. He also has 11 touchdowns and three interceptions.
