In the regular season finale, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer threw for 407 yards against the San Francisco 49ers. While the Cardinals fell short of making the playoffs, it was a successful and surprising year that ended in a milestone for Palmer.
Palmer finished the regular season with 4,274 yards passing yards, which was the fourth 4,000 yard season of his career.
Palmer had previously thrown for over 4,000 yards with the Cincinnati Bengals and Oakland Raiders, which made him the first player in NFL history to throw for 4,000 yards with three different teams.
As a result, Palmer’s jersey from the game against San Francisco is now on display in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
Mark Dalton, the Cardinals vice president of media relations, shared a photo of the jersey on display via Twitter:

After just falling short of the postseason this year, the Cardinals will now spend the offseason looking to build on the momentum they gained in 2013 and complete the job when next season kicks off.
