Looks like J.J. Watt won't be a Packer


Well, it looks like the dream is over! After we learned that former Wisconsin Badger and Pewaukee native J.J. Watt had asked for, and was granted his release from the Houston Texans, speculation that he could end up in Green Bay Packers uniform started almost immediately.

Seems like that's not going to happen as reports are that Watt will sign with the Arizona Cardinals for a pretty healthy sum for a play of his age and pension for injury. Reports from NFL insider Adam Schefter say he'll get a $31 million contract with $23 million guaranteed. Not a bad payday!
