TEMPE, Ariz.— The Arizona Cardinals have acquired quarterback Carson Palmer from the Oakland Raiders.
The Cardinals gave up a conditional seventh-round 2014 draft pick and swapped one of their sixth-round picks this year for Oakland's seventh-round selection.
Palmer reworked his contract as part of his move to the desert, agreeing to a two-year deal worth up to $20 million, with $10 million guaranteed.
If Palmer starts at least 13 games next season, Oakland gets Arizona's 2014 seventh-round pick. If he doesn't, the Cardinals owe the Raiders nothing.
New Arizona coach Bruce Arians gets a starting quarterback at a bargain basement price.
