The Arizona Cardinals have traded for former Oakland Raiders starting quarterback Carson Palmer. The deal means the Cardinals are trusting a veteran to fix their quarterback issues, after several unsuccessful experiments with youth. They've also found the right fit for new head coach Bruce Arians' deep passing offense.
Darren Urban of azcardinals.com reported the Cardinals dealt a sixth-round pick this year and a 2014 seventh-round pick to the Silver and Black. In exchange, they get Palmer and a 2013 seventh-round pick.
The Cardinals will be hoping the 33-year-old can replicate what Kurt Warner did in Arizona, during the twilight of his career. Warner took the Cardinals to their only Super Bowl appearance in 2008.
