Top Stories Palmer was acquired from the Oakland Raiders on April 2, 2013, for a 2013 sixth-round pick and a conditional pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.In his first season, Palmer led the Cardinals to a 10-6 record. His 4,274 yards passing that season made him the first player in NFL history to throw for at least 4,000 yards for three different teams.The 2014 season would be the first haunted by injuries. Two days after he received a three-year $50 million extension, he re-tore his ACL against the St. Louis Rams and would miss the rest of the season. Even without Palmer, the Cardinals would reach the playoffs with a record of 11-5, falling to the Carolina Panthers in the Wild Card round.Palmer would have the best season of his career in 2015. His 4,671 yards and 35 touchdowns were a franchise record. He went 13-3 as a starter, making his third Pro Bowl.For his success, he received one vote for the NFL’s MVP award, with one other vote going to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and the other 48 going to the award winner, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.He helped lead the Cardinals to a 26-20 overtime win over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Round, him and Arians’ lone playoff win in the Valley. In that game, Palmer went 25-of-41 for 349 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions. His 75-yard pass to Larry Fitzgerald opened overtime and a five-yard touchdown pass to Fitzgerald two plays later won the game. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer announced his retirement Tuesday.The Cardinals tweeted out an open letter from Palmer. Palmer’s 2016 saw him regress down to 4,233 yards with 26 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. The team went 7-8-1.This season, Palmer played in seven games, throwing for 1,978 yards, nine touchdowns and seven interceptions. He sat out the rest of the season after breaking his arm against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 7.The 38-year-old threw for more than 46,000 yards and 294 touchdowns in his 15-year career.Some of his many Cardinals records include the most seasons with 4,000 or more passing yards (three) and most games with 400 or more passing yards (three).Palmer signed a one-year extension in 2016 that would have had him play through the 2018 season.Cardinals quarterbacks Drew Stanton, Blaine Gabbert and Matt Barkley are not all under contract for next season.

League rejects Huddersfield complaint over contested try

first_imgSuper League Huddersfield Giants Share on Pinterest Share on Twitter Share on Twitter Gareth Walker Since you’re here… Share via Email Share on Facebook Shares00 Share on Facebook Tue 6 May 2008 19.06 EDT Share on Messenger Topics Stuart Cummings, the Rugby Football League match officials director, has backed the referee Ben Thaler following a complaint made by Huddersfield over an incident in Saturday’s match with Warrington. Giants’ officials called on the RFL to censure Thaler after the awarding of a crucial try to Stuart Reardon in the second half of the Giants’ 36-34 defeat.Huddersfield believe that Thaler called “held”, making the tackle on Reardon complete, before the full-back was released by the Giants defender Paul Jackson and fell over the line from close range. Thaler referred the incident to the video referee Ashley Klein, who awarded the try. Warrington trailed 6-22 at the time before recovering to win, and the Giants’ football manager Stuart Sheard yesterday labelled the decision as “ridiculous”.But Cummings has explained that Thaler called “short” rather than “held”, and that the referee was in radio contact with Klein over whether the tackle had been completed. “The video referee viewed the footage and decided correctly that the ball carrying arm had not touched the ground, and that the tackle had not been affected,” Cummings explained. “The video referee then checked if the referee [Thaler] had called ‘held’ at any time, and when he confirmed that he hadn’t, the try was awarded correctly.”Huddersfield’s centre Jamal Lolesi has been referred to a disciplinary hearing for verbally abusing match officials in the same match. Lolesi is twice alleged to have used foul and abusive language contrary to the true spirit of the game. He will appear before the League’s disciplinary panel in Leeds today on a grade C charge, which carries a suspension of up to four matches. Super League … we have a small favour to ask.
