On the heels of a 7-1 start, the Arizona Cardinals extended the contract of QB Carson Palmer. Terms of the contract were not disclosed but the deal will keep Palmer in Arizona through the 2017 season.
Although Palmer signed a three-year contract back in 2013, that deal would have voided days after this season's Super Bowl, making him a free agent. GM Steve Keim and Coach Bruce Arians had seen enough to make sure Palmer was locked up long term.
Despite missing three games with a nerve injury, Palmer has a QB Rating of 99.3 and has thrown 11 touchdowns compared to just two interceptions.
The Cardinals host the St. Louis Rams this week at University of Phoenix Stadium.
