As expected, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer announced that he is returning for the 2017 season. The 37-year-old said previously that he would return if his body was going to let him.

If he had not returned, the Cardinals were going to have to look for a signal-caller in a weak free agent class. Instead, they get to keep their own for at least another season.

This past season, Palmer was ninth in the league in passing yards. He had 4,233 passing yards with a 6-8-1 record in 15 games. He also had 26 touchdown passes and 14 interceptions.

This will be his fifth-year with the team. In four-years, he had a 35-17-1 record in 53 games. This past season was their worst season with Palmer and head coach Bruce Arians leading the way.

He also had 14,8004 passing yards with the Cardinals. Palmer has 96 touchdown passes and 50 interceptions.

In his 13-year career, Palmer is 89-84-1 in a 175 games, including a 174 starts. He has 44,269 passing yards — which is 14th all-time. He has 285 passing yards and a 180 interceptions.

The only active quarterbacks that have more passing yards than Palmer are New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. Manning, Roethlisberger and Rivers were all Top 11 picks in the 2004 NFL Draft.
