On Tuesday, Carson Palmer announced his retirement from football by penning a heartfelt letter. Arizona posted it on the team's Twitter page.

"For me, that time is now. The answer was nearly always the same: 'You just know.'" Palmer said in a letter published by the Cardinals.

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

The 2003 No. 1 overall pick out of the University of Southern California played eight seasons with the Bengals followed by a short, two-year stint in Oakland. He played seven games for the Cardinals in 2017, and threw for 7 touchdowns with 9 interceptions before being injured. "There wasn't one second that I took it for granted or failed to appreciate what a tremendous privilege it is". "Quite simply, I just know".

Fox expects to be fired by Bears
The Chicago Bears ' 2017 season came to a merciful end on Sunday as they fell 23-10 to the Minnesota Vikings . Jeremiah Sirles is already replacing left guard Nick Easton , who broke his ankle in Green Bay.

His best season came in 2015, when he passed for 4,671 yards and 35 touchdowns and led the Cardinals to the NFC Championship game against Carolina.

The retirement of Palmer, though not unexpected, leaves the Cardinals without a quarterback on their roster.

Larry Fitzgerald has still not announced whether or not he will return for another season. But Johnson and Palmer's injuries as well as other key injuries on offense were crushing. Despite being the Heisman Trophy victor in 2002 and the top pick, the Bengals opted to sit Palmer for his entire rookie year, as he learned from the coaches and veteran quarterback Jon Kitna.

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