The Cardinals wouldn't have traded for and then signed 33-year-old Carson Palmer if they believed he could no longer throw the deep ball. So far, head coach Bruce Arians likes what he has seen from Palmer. Most importantly, Arians said Palmer can still launch it.
"He's tough as nails," Arians said about Palmer on Sunday in an ESPN interview. "As good a deep-ball thrower as I've ever seen. I mean really accurate on the deep ball. He still has it. What he did last year with the Raiders, in a crazy situation, I thought was very, very impressive."
Oft-troubled wide receiver Titus Young got in trouble with the law again on Friday. He was arrested late that night after allegedly breaking into a home in San Clemente, Calif. He has been charged with burglary, assault on a police officer and resisting arrest. Friday's run-in follows a Sunday in which the former Lions wideout was arrested just after midnight on suspicion of driving under the influence. About 15 hours later, Young was arrested again after breaking into an impound lot and trying to steal his car back. He was charged with burglary.
