Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer announced his retirement on Tuesday via an open letter released by the team via social media.

Arizona's season arguably ended in Week 1 when David Johnson, left the game with a dislocated wrist.

Arians has had health issues in recent years, including treatment for diverticulitis and a successful fight against kidney cancer last off-season.

"It's been an unbelievable journey", he said.

Fitz has previously said that his retirement decision was not tied into the decision of Arians or quarterback Carson Palmer.

"Awesome guy, I'm sure gonna miss him", said Art Chacon, who is also a big fan. "I'll miss coming out of the locker room hearing the national anthem because it still gets to me". The Bears finished in the cellar of the NFC North for the third consecutive season under Fox, who was hired by the team in January 2015 after a four-year stint as the Denver Broncos' coach.

Two other coaches did not even make it to the New Year, with Chuck Pagano fired by the Colts after they beat the Houston Texans to close out a 4-12 season and Jack Del Rio jettisoned by the Oakland Raiders.

Once Reggie McKenzie became Oakland's general manager in 2013, he traded Palmer and the Raiders' seventh-round pick in the 2013 National Football League draft for Arizona's sixth-round selection in the same draft and a conditional seventh-round pick in 2014.

Gruden, who coached Oakland from 1998-2001, would return to the Raiders to replace Jack Del Rio, who was sacked after Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

Pees helped guide the Ravens to a victory in Super Bowl XLVII and won two rings while working with New England Patriots from 2004-09. The former Steelers defensive coordinator (1992-94) took over the Green Bay defense in 2009 helping the Packers win Super Bowl XLV with a top-five ranked total defense. Thompson has been the Packers' GM since 2005 and he's posted a 125-82-1 record.
