Carson Palmer Inducted Into College Football Hall Of Fame

Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill in attendance

Carson Palmer, Hall of Famer.

The Cardinals Ring of Honor member and former quarterback was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame Tuesday night in Las Vegas. Among those in attendance was Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill, who is also on the National Football Foundation's board of directors.

Palmer starred at USC from 1998 to 2002 before the Bengals drafted him No. 1 overall in 2003. Palmer came to the Cardinals in trade in 2013 as Bruce Arians was arriving as coach, and as promised, he and Palmer rode off into the sunset together after the 2017 season. (Although B.A. came back out of the sunset to coach the Buccaneers, but that's a story for another time.)

"It's not something you think about when you're in high school or what college you're going to go to," Palmer said. "You're thinking about winning a national championship, getting a ring, and being an All-American. It's not until you get out of college and get away from the game and have a chance to look back when you realize how special it is to be in the Hall of Fame."
