Cardinals | Carson Palmer says he'll be ready (Thu Mar 5, 05:05 PM) - Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) said he has been running for two or three weeks and throwing five times a week. He is 'pretty close' to being able to participate in a normal workout, and he said he moved past his post-surgery 'funk' when he was able to sweat during workouts. 'I'm going to be ready to rock 'n' roll by the season,' Palmer said. 'Definitely going to be ready by that, definitely going to be ready for camp. And shooting to be getting reps in our mandatory (minicamp) and hopefully some of our OTA practices.'

Our View: As we have said before, it is vital for Palmer to be ready to go for this team at the start of the season - we've seen what it looks like without him and it is unpleasant.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer reworks deal (Thu Mar 5, 03:57 PM) - Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said he agreed to restructure his contract this offseason in order to create some salary cap space for the team.

Our View: They need him to do that so they can finish building around him. They had a solid defense, but the offense was a bit of a mess. Of course, some of that was because of Palmer's injury and they will lose some defensive players to free agency if they lack cap room. So this was an important move for Palmer and the Cardinals.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer may be ready for camp (Thu Mar 5, 03:56 PM) - Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) said he is ahead of schedule in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and expects to be ready for training camp.

Our View: If you're playing 'what if' you have to wonder 'what if Arizona had a quarterback worth a nickel last season' and whether they would have given Carolina more of a run in the playoffs. That said, they desperately need him healthy for this season as it is clear they have no real backup plan there. Long term though, you have to wonder last season made them think hard about the future.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer might restructure (Thu Feb 26, 12:57 AM) - Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer might restructure his contract to ease his cap number of $14.5 million for 2015, according to a source. As long as the team does not increase his salary they can redo the deal he just signed during the 2014 season. According to reports, a $9.5 million roster bonus might be converted to a signing bonus.

Our View: Palmer knows time is short and the team has other needs the money can go to. He wants a ring as much as Larry Fitzgerald and will do what he can to help the team get the pieces it needs to contend for a championship. The Cardinals need him as much as he needs them though--so he has some leverage--though we think he won't fight them much on it.
