Arizona Cardinals quarterback CARSON PALMER threw for 407 yards in last Sunday's season finale the 49ers, giving him a career-high 4,274 yards in 2013 and making the first player in NFL history to throw for 4,000+ yards for three different teams. He previously threw for 4,000 yards twice as a member of the Bengals (2007, '08) and he also threw for 4,000 yards with the Raiders in 2012

The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH is commemorating Palmer's historic accomplishment by displaying the jersey he wore in Sunday's game.

Palmer became just the third quarterback in Cardinals history to throw for 4,000+ in a season and the first since Kurt Warner in 2008.

This was the second time in the 2013 season that Cardinals game-used equipment was sent to the Hall of Fame. CB Patrick Peterson became the first NFL defender since at least the 1970 merger to post a reception and a completion in Arizona's Week 2 game against Detroit and his gloves as well as the football used in the pass completion are on display in Canton, OH.

In addition to the many artifacts from pro football's history on display in Canton, the Hall also collects current items that reflect significant achievements of the present day.
