Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning recently returned from visiting troops in Afghanistan.  A guy who would like to knock Peyton back there without a plane will soon be visiting the troops, too.

According to the team’s official web site, Texans defensive end J.J. Watt will participate in the annual NFL-USO tour of U.S. overseas military bases.

Watt, 23, has completed two NFL seasons.  He was the league’s defensive player of the year in 2012, with 20.5 sacks.

The other participants on this year’s NFL-USO tour aren’t yet known.

    Troops wanted to see J.J. after he reached out and deflected one of the passes Manning threw in Afghanistan. From his front porch in Wisconsin.

    JJ Watt is one of the best young players in the NFL… both on AND off the field.

    Just an all around good guy.
    He does the Texans proud, wish his appreciation of the good fortune of his career would rub off on some of the other players in the league.
