Carson Palmer announces his retirement from the National Football League with heartwarming letter

He was drafted by the Bengals with the first overall pick in the 2003 draft.

Former USC Trojan great Carson Palmer, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2002, has announced that he will retire from professional football after a 15-year NFL career.

Palmer has played for the Cardinals for the last five years, starting 60 games.

Palmer made a decision to hang 'em up in an open letter where says he will miss his teammates and the "grind" but believes it is time to call it a career.

"For me, that time is now".

North Korea received oil from Russian Federation in violation of United Nations sanctions
Trump's comments came after he took to Twitter to blast the Chinese for reportedly secretly shipping oil to North Korea. South Korea plans to report the results of its inspection to the UN Security Council's sanctions committee.

Palmer led the Cardinals to a 3-4 record to start the 2017 season before breaking his left, non-throwing arm in Week 7 against the Rams and going on injured reserve days later.

"What I'll never forget are the relationships - not just the wonderful teammates and coaches, but all of those countless people at the Bengals, Raiders and Cardinals who work behind the scenes to make this whole thing run". Palmer retired for the first time following the 2010 season. Palmer then spent eight seasons with the Bengals before a short stint with the Raiders. Cincinnati shipped him in October 2011 to the Oakland Raiders, for whom he played until they dealt him to the Cardinals in April 2013.

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 victor, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.

Palmer ends his career 12th on the all-time rankings with 294 touchdown passes.

Cardinals backup quarterbacks Blaine Gabbert and Drew Stanton are both free agents, so Palmer's retirement leaves Arizona without a quarterback under contract for the 2018 season.
