The Pewaukee, Wisconsin native JJ Watt won’t be coming home.
The former Wisconsin Badgers star announced via Twitter late this morning that he’ll be playing for the Arizona Cardinals.
Adam Schefter announced the details of the contract:
The Green Bay Packers were among the numerous teams that were interested in signing Watt, but with salary cap issues of their own, it was very unlikely the Packers would be able to swing a deal like the Cardinals offered him.
I’m disappointed that he didn’t sign with the Packers, but now it’s time for the Packers to get back on the market and sign and draft some players to get them over the (NFC Championship Game) hump.
