2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Carson Palmer was a legitimate NFL MVP candidate during the 2015 season, but the wheels started to come off in 2016. It's hard to tell whether it was age, injuries, play-calling or a lack of performance from his receivers, but Palmer took a huge step back this past season. Realistically, Palmer's unbelievable 8.7 yards per pass attempt from 2015 was unsustainable. But to see that number drop down to 7.1 yards per attempt - his worst number in six seasons - was a bit shocking. Of course, the departure of Michael Floyd and the recurring illnesses of John Brown were not helpful. One major concern is the Cardinals have seemingly transitioned into an offense centered around the skillset of running back David Johnson, who absolutely exploded this past season with gigantic production despite struggles from the majority of the other players in the offense.

Given the age, size and injury history of the receivers on the roster, Palmer simply doesn't have the weapons he has had at his disposal in the past. The truth is that we're unlikely to ever see Palmer put together another season similar to the whopping 35-touchdown, 4,600-plus yard season he did in 2015. However, that doesn't mean that he's guaranteed to be the same guy we saw struggle with efficiency this past season. Palmer is firmly entrenched as a QB2 at the moment, but he's never been particularly safe with the ball, which certainly limits his upside. He's a high-floor option when he's healthy, but he's dealt with injuries in the past so there is some risk there as well.

News From The Past 90 Days
Cardinals add QB Blaine Gabbert
Carson Palmer has new backup
By: Mike Krueger | Wed May 10, 10:00 pm

Arizona Cardinals
In case of emergency, Blaine Gabbert. That's who the Cardinals will be able to turn to -- if something unfortunate happens to Carson Palmer -- after they sign the quarterback to a one-year deal, which they intend to do on Thursday, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the situation. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Drew Stanton is still in Arizona but will have competition as Carson Palmer's backup. Gabbert threw 5 TDs and 6 INTs in six games last season for San Francisco with a 57 competition percentage.
