PHOENIX (AP) -

Carson Palmer is coming back for a 15th NFL season with the Arizona Cardinals.

The 37-year-old quarterback said in a statement he is "ready to get back to work and prepare for the 2017 season.

There had been speculation about Palmer and receiver Larry Fitzgerald for next season. Fitzgerald said last week he was returning.

Both Palmer and Fitzgerald agreed to a one-year contract extension last year.

Palmer released the following statement:

“My intent was to take some time after the season to get away and see where I was physically and mentally,” Palmer said. “On both fronts, I can say I’m ready to get back to work and prepare for the 2017 season. This is a phenomenal group with a very special opportunity in front of it. I know how rare that is and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it.”
