A report surfaced last night that Cardinals QB Carson Palmer had pulled his kids out of school, put his home up for sale, and moved his family out of Arizona.
A few reports later mentioned that Palmer’s house isn’t for sale and the quarterback offered a comment Wednesday morning confirming as much.
“No, my house in Arizona is not on the market. And every year we have taken off for offseason family adventures so there’s nothing to read into there either,” Palmer said, per Mark Dalton.

Texans DE J.J. Watt said he feels “great” after recovering from a second back surgery and he’s now getting back to training as an elite athlete again.
“We’re now past the whole rehab process,” Watt said, via ESPN.com. “We’ve transitioned from a rehab and rebuild into just being an athlete again, to now back into regular training, and really training as an elite athlete again, and taking this now to the next level.”
Watt added that the extended recovery period has really helped him this time around.
“The one nice thing about the situation is that I’ve had the proper amount of time to take the recovery as methodically as it needs to be taken and do things the right way, with the proper patience, but also the proper aggressiveness at times,” Watt said.
