Palmer joins 17 other players in the Arizona Cardinals Ring of Honor: Jim Hart, Kurt Warner, Charles W. Bidwill, Sr. (Owner), Jimmy Conzelman (Coach), T Dan Dierdorf, HB John “Paddy” Driscoll, HB/DB Marshall Goldberg, WR Roy Green, CB Dick “Night Train” Lane, HB Ollie Matson, HB Ernie Nevers, S Pat Tillman, HB Charley Trippi, CB Roger Wehrli, CB Aeneas Williams, S Adrian Wilson and S Larry Wilson.
It is interesting to see that Palmer is only the third quarterback in franchise history to make the Cardinals Ring of Honor, joining Jim Hart and Kurt Warner.
It is for this reason that Palmer’s inclusion makes sense, as his numbers for the franchise are very good: Started 60 games, completing 1,373-of-2,197 pass attempts (62.5%) for 16,782 yards, 105 TDs, 57 INTs and a 91.1 passer rating.

Yet, not everyone agrees.
Let’s take a look at what social media and fans are saying about the Arizona Cardinals making Carson Palmer the 18th member of the Ring of Honor.
I was as surprised as Carson Palmer was at his ROH induction. Only 5 years. That said, never covered anyone more respected by teammates, coaches and anyone else who worked around him. Keim stole him from Raiders.— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) June 4, 2019
If Carson Palmer is getting into the Ring of Honor, the Cardinals must be planning on replacing their logo at midfield with a giant headshot of Larry Fitzgerald when he retires. https://t.co/slbtEfwaYj— JJ Zachariason (@LateRoundQB) June 4, 2019
Nothing against Carson Palmer, but I think Ron Wolfley should be in Ring of Honor. Four-time Pro Bowl special teams player.— scott bordow (@sbordow) June 4, 2019
If the Cardinals are going to put Carson Palmer in their Ring of Honor they better build a statue, re-name the stadium, and make specific jerseys for Larry Fitzgerald.— RJ Ochoa (@rjochoa) June 4, 2019
The Cardinals announced they will be inducting Carson Palmer into their Ring of Honor. Very well deserved.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) June 4, 2019

Very nice honor for Carson Palmer, who was told by Cardinals President Michael Bidwill that he will be inducted into the team's Ring of Honor.— Bob McManaman (@azbobbymac) June 4, 2019
What do you think? Does Palmer deserve it?
