Palmer has looked healthy early in training camp, which is a good sign according to CBS NFL columnist Pete Prisco, who visited Cardinals camp this week.
“Palmer, to me, looked like he was better than he was before he got hurt,” Prisco told Doug and Wolf on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Wednesday morning. “And by that I mean he’s stronger, he’s worked on his mechanics. The ball comes out better. I think if there’s any concern whatsoever about Carson Palmer, there shouldn’t be, because he looked like the same guy he was.”
In the 15 games since his team’s 2013 bye, Palmer is averaging 277 yards 1.8 touchdowns and 0.8 interceptions. Those are fringe QB1 numbers, and he has a nice receiving corps (including Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and John Brown) to throw to. Everything is going smoothly with his recovery from ACL surgery, so as long as he doesn’t suffer a setback this summer, he's our favorite 2015 sleeper at the quarterback position.
