Report: Carson Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald could both retire
Bruce Arians may not be the only key personality the Arizona Cardinals lose to retirement this offseason.
The Cardinals are still awaiting word on the fates of quarterback Carson Palmer and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Palmer is seen as a long shot to return, while Fitzgerald may not be keen on working with a new head coach.
While the #AZCardinals have clarity on Bruce Arians, they are still waiting on Larry Fitzgerald and Carson Palmer. The QB seems to be the longest shot to come back, while those who know Fitz well believe he won't want to return for a new system.

Palmer broke his arm during the season and strongly considered retirement a year ago. Fitzgerald, on the other hand, has some good reasons to think long and hard about a possible return. Whoever the Cardinals bring in as the new head coach may have significant bearing on his ultimate decision.
