Former NFL quarterback Carson Palmer's five-year run with the Arizona Cardinals will be honored in 2019.

The Cardinals announced Tuesday that Palmer will be inducted into the team's Ring of Honor during a halftime ceremony of the Sept. 29 game against the Seattle Seahawks at State Farm Stadium.

"I am absolutely honored," Palmer told team president Michael Bidwill in a video posted to Twitter. "Five years was not enough for me. I wish we would've gotten there earlier as you know, but I am beyond honored and I can't wait. That's amazing."

Palmer joined the Cardinals in 2013 via trade with the Oakland Raiders and posted a .642 winning percentage (38-21-1) in five seasons in Arizona, marking the best winning percentage in team history.

The signal-caller also holds the Cardinals' single-season records for passing yards (4,671), touchdowns (35) and passer rating (104.6), all of which Palmer established in 2015 en route to his third career Pro Bowl selection. Palmer also holds team records in 300-yard passing games (25) and 400-yard passing performances (three).

Palmer spent 15 total years in the NFL. He entered the league in 2003 as the first overall pick of the draft with the Cincinnati Bengals, where he spent eight seasons and earned two consecutive Pro Bowl selections (2005-06). Palmer then spent two seasons with the Raiders (2011-12) before landing in Arizona.

Palmer will become the 18th member of the Cardinals Ring of Honor.
