Carson Palmer entering his final season?

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer told the media that he has "no idea" if 2017 will be his final season in the NFL.

Fantasy Impact

Palmer, 37, had seriously considered retiring this offseason. However, he ultimately elected to return along with teammate Larry Fitzgerald. Although his production regressed from 2015, Palmer still had a solid statistical year last season. In 15 games, he threw for 4,233 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions including six games of passing for at least 300 yards, plus, a 61 percent completion percentage. From a fantasy football perspective, Palmer is still a reliable signal caller, even if he's not a clear-cut QB1. He has a plethora of high-end weapons surrounding him that are playmakers that include, Fitzgerald, David Johnson, John Brown and J.J. Nelson. Palmer should be considered a borderline QB1/ QB2 for 2017 whose upside is sky high if his health and the health of his arsenal remains intact.

Carson Palmer will play in 2017

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer has officially announced that he will play in 2017.

Fantasy Impact

After a vast amount of uncertainty surrounding Palmer's playing status next season, the 37-year-old signal caller has officially announced that he will play in 2017. Expect Palmer, who has two years remaining on his current deal, to play out his contract and retire following the 2018 campaign. Despite his age, he is still one of the better statistical quarterbacks in the league.

Carson Palmer likely to return for 2017

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians believes quarterback Carson Palmer will "announce he's coming back [ in 2017] real soon."

Fantasy Impact

Now that Larry Fitzgerald committed to playing in 2017, Palmer's announcement is expected to follow in the coming weeks or even days. As both players are said to be "tied at the hip," this upcoming season could be the last for both -- assuming Palmer indeed returns.

Carson Palmer likely to return for 2017

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes because Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is returning to play in 2017, it is a "good sign" for quarterback Carson Palmer's return as well. Rapoport believes both players are "tied at the hip."

Fantasy Impact

Rapoport confirmed Fitzgerald's return late Wednesday night, opening the door for Palmer's likely announcement in the coming days. Reports flurried throughout the month of January citing Palmer has sold his house and pulled his children out of school in Arizona, but the signal caller denied those allegations. If Palmer returns, the Cardinals are still likely to address the quarterback position this offseason as he is nearing the end of his playing career even if he does, in fact, decide to play another year. Palmer is under contract with the Cardinals until 2019.

Carson Palmer's NFL future in question

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Arizona Cardinals are unsure if quarterback Carson Palmer will return next season.

Fantasy Impact

Rapoport adds that some sources close to the Cardinals believe Palmer will return, while league sources believe the signal caller will retire. After an outstanding 2015 campaign, Palmer, 37, had a mediocre 2016. Playing in 15 games, he produced a 4,233-24-14 quarterback stat line and is beginning to show signs of aging as well as the wear and tear on his body. If Palmer retires, the Cardinals would immediately be in the Tony Romo sweepstakes assuming he played his last down in Dallas.
