He’s not thinking about that. The veteran is solely focused on what lays ahead in 2015.“Really, you look at it as one year at a time. I’m going into year 13 and there’s no reason to look past this year,” he said. “That’s why I have such an urgency about me and I’m putting urgency on the guys around me. If you’re a young guy, you can’t look at it like ‘well, this is year three for me, but I’ll be around for year four and hopefully I’ll be in the league in year five.’“You’ve got to take advantage of every year.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Your browser does not support the audio element. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is probably getting sick of being asked how he’s feeling.The 35-year-old is heading into his 13th NFL season, but is also coming off his second surgery to repair a torn ACL.As obvious as the question is, it’s also a pertinent one.“Awesome, awesome,” Palmer told Doug and Wolf Thursday on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “Things have been going great, I’ve got a long way to go.

He’s also bullish on the Cardinals’ upcoming season, but realizes the window for success in the NFL is a small one.“You look at our team and our roster and the way things are built and this is the year we have to take advantage of it,” he said. “This is a year that we feel we have a good team and we don’t want to sit around and talk about playing in Super Bowls and all of those things, but you look at our team, you look at the experience we have, you look at the depth we have, it’s a very well-constructed roster.“You just know that rosters don’t stay like this for very long. We have to take advantage of this roster.”Palmer doesn’t know when the end of his career will be, but he doesn’t believe that he’ll be one of those quarterbacks that hangs on in the league until he reaches his 40s.
