Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer announces retirement

The difference this year is that head coach Bruce Arians is already gone.

But his boss, John Elway, slept on it and chose to keep Joseph and not begin a search for the team's fourth coach in five years. While we wait on Palmer as well, Fitz's decision will be his own. Surely he will want to know what direction the team is not only going as far as a head coach but also at quarterback.

Maybe most intriguing was the prospect of Jon Gruden leaving the broadcasting booth and returning to the Raiders. He came with Arians to Arizona in 2013, serving as outside linebackers coach for two years before being promoted to defensive coordinator in 2015.

The Bills play the Jacksonville Jaguars next Sunday before the Carolina Panthers take on the New Orleans Saints. He served as an assistant at six other colleges before launching a six-year run as an assistant with New England.

Baltimore won the 2012 Super Bowl with Pees guiding the defense.

Packers general manager Ted Thompson wasn't expected to be on the hot seat, but NFL Network reported Thompson will transition to a new role with the team and the Packers will search for a new GM. He spent five years in Seattle between 2000 and 2004, then returned to Green Bay and was named the GM in 2005.

Lewis said the organization has to do a better job of building a team that can win the AFC North. That happened when Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton connected on fourth down with a 49-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd to earn a 31-27 win at the death and send Buffalo's players into delirium.

Buffalo lacks depth at the position a week after backup Travaris Cadet broke his ankle. Caldwell was 36-28 in four seasons and went 0-2 in two postseasons with the Lions.
