Jan 13 2018 - Sam Bradford

Jan 12 2018 - Sam Bradford
  QB Sam Bradford may or may not dress for Sunday's divisional matchup against the New Orleans Saints, according to coach Mike Zimmer.

Jan 2 2018 - Carson Palmer
  Carson Palmer announced his retirement on Tuesday after 15 seasons in the NFL. The 38-year-old Palmer was named to the Pro Bowl three times, but his 2017 season was cut short by a broken arm that limited him to seven games.

Palmer spent his first eight seasons with the Bengals before being traded to the Oakland Raiders. He played in Oakland for two years before playing five seasons with Arizona.

Jan 1 2018 - Chandler Jones
