Carson Palmer Biography

Carson Hilton Palmer was born on the 27 December 1979, in Fresno, California USA, to parents Danna and Bill Palmer. He is mostly known as an American football quarterback who plays for the Arizona Cardinals in the National Football League (NFL), which has probably had the biggest impact on his total net worth.

So, just how rich is Carson Palmer? Well, this American’s net worth is estimated by sources in early-2016 to be over $60 million, the larger part of his wealth having coming from his NFL contracts and sponsorship endorsements. In 2005, he signed with the Bengals a six-year contract expansion worth $118.75 million. Palmer is considered to be one of the top paid NFL players of all time. In 2008, Palmer designed one of 3 Air Max 90s, which Nike afterwards released, which resembles the notable Air Max 90 Infrareds. He owns an 8,000-square-foot residence with six bedrooms and eight bathrooms in San Diego, built on the half-acre asset, which he bought in 2010 from the city of Del Mar for $4.4 million. In November 2015, he signed a three-year extension worth $49.5 million with the Arizona Cardinals, which enhanced his already considerable wealth.

Carson spent his childhood in California. When he was in seventh grade, he already had outstanding mass and arm strength for his age. His father sent him to Orange County, where he was trained by quarterback expert Bob B. Johnson. He attended Santa Margarita Catholic High School in California, and it is said that he was so good that players from other teams paused their practice to watch him playing. In 2002, he won the Heisman Trophy at USC, where he went to college. In 2003, he was chosen as the first overall NFL Draft pick by The Cincinnati Bengals, where he played for eight seasons, setting many franchise records in the process, and appeared in two Pro-Bowls 2005 and 2006 – also MVP. It was here, when he wanted to be traded, that he became known for saying:” I don’t have to play football for cash. I want to play it for the love of the game but that must be elsewhere.”

He afterwards played for three seasons for the Oakland Raiders, and he is currently playing for the Arizona Cardinals, plus being selected for Pro-Bowl 2015. Showing his many talents, Palmer also appeared as himself in several episodes of the TV series “The Replacements”..

Concerning his personal life, Carson Palmer has been married to Shaelynn – a former USC soccer player – since 2003, and they have four children, two of whom are twins. In the off-season, they live in San Diego, California, and are tremendously active in that district. They held a charity golf tournament for the children’s facility that treats maltreated and abandoned children from six to 18 years old. They funded the build of a new structure on that property as well, which is now named after them. He is a dedicated Christian and an organ donor. He dislikes public displays.
