There are high hopes all around for the Arizona Cardinals after bringing in former Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer. They still believe Palmer is still the player he was many years ago, when he was chosen to Pro Bowl. Problem is, that was back in 2006, and Palmer is 33 years-old now. But that's not stopping many in Arizona from believing  that Palmer is still the guy. General Manager Steve Keim has been watching Palmer closely, and he feels good about the decision to bring him in. Carson actually had a good year statistically last year in Oakland, passing for 4,018 yards and completing 61.1 percent of his passes. “We started doing our due diligence on Carson in January,” Keim said, via the Arizona Republic. “And with our new video system, I was able to cut up every one of his passing plays for the last three seasons.

Carson Palmer says joining the Cardinals was a 'hands down no-brainer'

Cardinals’ 2013 draft needs: Safety

The Arizona Cardinals in one fell swoop released Adrian Wilson and Kerry Rhodes, which leaves the Cards looking for two starting safeties in the 2013 NFL draft.

NFL Draft Team Needs: Arizona Cardinals

1. Offensive Tackle: Arizona has one of the worst tackle situations in all of football; just ask Kevin Kolb. Whoever their quarterback is just won't stand a chance if the line stays the same.
