Despite reports the 37-year-old took his kids out of school and sold his home in Arizona, Palmer will suit up for his 15th NFL season and fifth with the Cardinals after joining the team in 2013.

“This is a phenomenal group with a very special opportunity in front of it,” Palmer said. “I know how rare that is and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it.”

Browns use deck of cards to test Dan Feeney at NFL Combine

The NFL Combine is full of skill challenges that test a players’ athleticism, so the Browns decided to go in a different route during the interview process.

Instead of asking Indiana guard Dan Feeney about football, the Cleveland franchise brought out a deck of playing cards. Naturally, the strategy caught Feeney off-guard, but he did his best to oblige.

“I’d like to see him more flexible more than anything else, especially through the Cheap Retro NBA Jerseys shoulders,” coach Ron Rivera told reporters Thursday at the NFL Combine, via ESPN. “That seemed to be where he had a lot of his problems, is getting that shoulder strength back up, getting that shoulder flexibility back, more so than anything else.”

Newton’s MVP season in 2015, highlighted by a career-best 35 passing touchdowns and a trip to Super Bowl 50, was followed by a much less impressive performance in 2016. The veteran completed just 53 percent of his passes for 3,509 yards with 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

Griffin has yet to play a 16-game season in his career

Just five seasons ago, Robert Griffin III was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. In 2012, he put up 3,200 passing yards with 20 touchdowns and 815 rushing yards, with another seven touchdowns on the ground. But that season ended with an ACL tear that was a sign of things to come.

But at this point in his career, a team doesn’t need 16 games out of Griffin. He’s on the hunt for backup duty, and Griffin’s a high-quality option for teams that have offenses tailored to his skills.

On the field, he’s a dual threat who finished 2016 with 16 touchdowns and four interceptions — more than respectable numbers for a passer on a team with a shaky offensive line and the worst wide receiver corps in the NFL.

Other players weren’t as lucky when it came to avoiding wear and tear. Robert Griffin III is just 27, but Make Cheap Jerseys Online the quarterback has racked up injuries in his brief NFL career. There’s reason to doubt Mitchell And Ness Cheap Jerseys if he can even come close to finishing a full 16-game season.
