QBs Who Started Over

Carson Palmer

Twenty-four quarterbacks since 1998 have played in a new city after throwing for at least 2,500 yards the previous season. Carson Palmer repeats the drill yet again this year while Ryan Fitzpatrick (Buffalo to Tennessee) becomes the 25th person in the fraternity. Here's a look at how the 24 QBs fared in their transition, beginning with Palmer, who's now in Arizona.

Trying to escape a team that had only two winning records in the previous 20 seasons, Palmer requested a trade from Cincinnati on the back of a 3,970-yard and 26-touchdown 2010 season. He had to wait, but eventually got his wish in a move to the Raiders, where he threw for 6,771 yards and 35 touchdowns in two playoff-less seasons. The Cardinals traded for him in April 2013 with the hope that he could give them winning production at the game's most pivotal position. It's not happening.
