The Arizona Cardinals had a wonderful 2013 season and just missed the playoffs by the skin of their teeth.
Knowing that, the team doesn’t have any plans to make a quarterback change going into 2014 as they’re not going to mess with a good thing.
A look ahead: Palmer turned 34 in December but he proved to be durable. After the final game, Palmer said he was probably as healthy as any other quarterback in the NFL. With a year of experience in Arians’ system, Palmer should be better in 2014, and the Cardinals will need him to be. Palmer is under contract through 2014. (Technically, he’s under contract for 2015, too, but that year voids if he’s on the roster five days after next year’s Super Bowl.)
Palmer tossed 22 interceptions during the season – near the top of the league (though nobody was closet to Eli Manning) so he’ll need to be a bit more careful with the pigskin next year, but the veteran certainly didn’t look like he was slowing down any.
Next season looks to be extremely promising for Arizona.
