Carson Palmer completed 13-of-25 passes for 178 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions in Sunday's 17-10 Week 16 upset at Seattle.

Palmer was predictably horrific in this brutal spot, throwing passes up for grabs and sparring with Bruce Arians on the sideline. He now has two touchdowns and six interceptions in two meetings with the Legion of Boom this season. But Palmer did make one great throw, a jump ball to Michael Floyd for a 31-yard game-winning touchdown with 2:20 left in the fourth. The Cardinals have won three straight games and seven of their last eight heading into another tough Week 17 matchup against the 49ers.

The league will announce the 2014 schedule Wednesday at 8PM ET on NFL Network.

The "drama" is over. This season's matchups are already known, but the dates are not. The season will begin on a Thursday night in Seattle, where the defending-champion Seahawks will likely host a conference rival.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Seahawks and LCB Richard Sherman "have made considerable progress" on a long-term deal that will make Sherman the highest-paid corner in the NFL.

The sides are "hopeful" the deal will be completed by the draft, and it's expected to be worth north of $13 million annually. Darrelle Revis is currently the top-paid corner in the league at $12 million for 2014. Aqib Talib sets the bar in terms of guaranteed money with $26 million. Sherman should shatter that. The 2011 fifth-rounder just turned 26 last month and is entering the final year of his deal.

Free agent LB Russell Allen suffered a stroke in Week 15 and is being forced to retire.

It was initially believed that Allen suffered a concussion in the Week 15 tilt, but two days later it was discovered that he suffered an on-field stroke. A dead spot in his brain, on his cerebellum, has resulted in the end of his football career. We now know why Allen was released with the failed physical designation last week. The 27-year-old entered the league as an undrafted free agent and never missed a game until the final two of 2013. His career ends with 331 tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles, and one interception across five seasons.

The New York Daily News reports FS Will Hill is likely "done" with the Giants after failing another drug test.

Hill is facing a lengthy suspension, one that could cost him 6-8 games or an entire calendar year. It'll be Hill's third suspension in as many seasons, though he does plan to appeal. Whether he wins that appeal or not isn't expected to matter in terms of saving his job with the Giants. The team is reportedly "livid" at Hill's continued drug issues. He was PFF's No. 2 overall safety in 2013.

Giants FS Will Hill is facing another suspension for violating the league's drug policy.

Hill has been suspended in each of his first two seasons, one for violating the PED policy and the other for illegal substances. The troubled former Florida Gator has reportedly failed another drug test and could be facing a yearlong ban. Hill has admitted in the past that he enjoys smoking marijuana. He has gobs of talent but may not be in the league much longer if he continues to blaze up.

Steelers exercised DE Cameron Heyward's fifth-year club option for 2015.

Heyward, the 31st overall pick in 2011, became a full-time starter last season and played on 845 defensive snaps. He's now under team control for a little over $8 million through the next two seasons. Heyward has yet to miss an NFL game and is coming off a 59-tackle, five-sack season as a 13-game starter. He's above average as both a pass rusher and run stopper in Pittsburgh's 3-4.

Seahawks acquired QB Terrelle Pryor from the Raiders for a seventh-round draft pick.

The 49ers were also trying to acquire Pryor. GM Reggie McKenzie did well to get something after acknowledging Pryor wasn't going to be on the team. With Pryor under contract for a meager $705,000 in 2014, he wasn't going to make it to Seattle on waivers, so they had to trade for him if they wanted him. If Pryor is going to stick in Seattle, he's going to have to be kept as the No. 3 quarterback. Tarvaris Jackson is locked in as Russell Wilson's top backup on a fully guaranteed deal. Pryor will compete with B.J. Daniels for No. 3 duties.

Dolphins second-year CB Jamar Taylor told the Idaho Statesman that he considered quitting football during his disappointing rookie season.

Last year's 54th overall pick, Taylor was part of a Jeff Ireland draft class that provided the team with next to nothing in 2013. Taylor only got on the field for 45 defensive snaps. "It was to the point last year I thought I was done playing football," he said. "I didn’t want to play anymore. I was out of it. Thank God for my girlfriend, my family, my pastors and God — because I made it through and kept working. I’m really looking forward to this year."

Saints exercised RE Cameron Jordan's fifth-year club option for 2015.

It's a no-brainer move for New Orleans, which now has Jordan under control for $8.4 million over the next two seasons. A 2013 breakout player, Jordan graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 4 3-4 end, behind only J.J. Watt, Calais Campbell, and Kyle Williams. Only Watt received better pass-rush marks. Turning 25 in July, Jordan has 20.5 sacks and five forced fumbles over the past two seasons.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid confirmed Monday that second-year TE Travis Kelce is "progressing well" from last year's microfracture knee surgery, and "doing everything" in the offseason conditioning program.

Kelce had the operation on his right knee last October. It was considered a "minor" version of microfracture surgery. Beat writer Adam Teicher expects the Chiefs to use Kelce as their primary "pass receiver at tight end" in his second season, with Anthony Fasano and Sean McGrath focusing on blocking. A Heath Miller-type talent, Kelce has 2014 breakout appeal. He could benefit statistically if the Chiefs use their first-round pick on a position other than wide receiver.

Chiefs LT Eric Fisher is recovering from shoulder and sports-hernia operations.

According to coach Andy Reid, Fisher is "rehabbing and doing well." No other information about Fisher's operations was disclosed, but it appears he should be ready to roll for training camp. Per Reid, Fisher has also gained five pounds of "good weight" after getting tossed around a bit as a rookie right tackle. The No. 1 pick of last spring's draft will be the Chiefs' blindside protector this season.
