Carson Palmer's house hits the market

Anybody who thinks that Bengals QB Carson Palmer is bluffing when he talks about retiring instead of stepping foot once more in Paul Brown Stadium – not that I imagine there are many of you out there – should look at his house listing on the Comey & Shepard website (via the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Joe Reedy).

Palmer is selling his place for $2.1 million (by the way, he paid $2.04 million for it in 2003) in the glitzy Indian Hills neighborhood.* It’s got five bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, a three-car garage and a full basement.

*Yes, yes, Cincinnati actually has a “glitzy” area of town .

Altogether, the abode is 5,500 square feet, and according to the listing, it’s an “exceptional Home that exudes comfort, character & privacy” that sits on a five-acre lot.

But be careful. You’ll probably have to pay about $25,000 in property taxes per year. Of course, if you can afford a $2.1 million house, an extra $25K annually probably isn’t a big deal. Maybe it is to Palmer, though, considering he’s about to retire and probably needs to save all the money he can get at this point.

Obviously, I’m kidding about that. But for a guy who has tens of millions of dollars in the bank, a $2 million house doesn’t seem that much, does it? It seems rather modest actually.

No, no Dez is not paying attention.  He'll be another broke azz... playa before to long.  Homeless or in jail.  and the media will feel bad for the former NFL playa as thoe it was the NFL's fault.  And it is - they shouldn't give 'em so much cash.  The NFL can't be their momma

That's the reason he has $80MM, (his quoted figure), in the bank.  He bought a place that met his needs and was well within his means.  Dez Bryant?  Are you paying attention?
