GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has worked with some pretty good quarterbacks in his coaching career — Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Andrew Luck.
Now, with Arians at age 60 in his first full season as an NFL head coach, his quarterback is 33-year-old Carson Palmer.
Arians jokes that it's like a cowboy movie, with "two old guys in our last rodeo in the desert."
Palmer has arrived highly motivated. At this stage of his career, he's not interested in a long rebuilding project. It's about winning now, he said. No matter what it will have to come in the NFC West, arguably the toughest division in the league.
