Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt has been released, and the other star who wants out of Houston has some thoughts about that.

Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson wrote on Twitter that he has loved playing with Watt for the last four seasons and thinks the team that acquires him will be lucky.

I appreciate you for all the work you put in and more importantly the person you are,” Watson wrote. “Any team in the league will be better the day you out on their jersey! 1OVE my brother! MORE Glory.”

Whether Watson remains with the Texans remains to be seen. Watson wants to be traded; the Texans do not want to trade him. Watt got his wish and will get to explore all options as he decides where to continue his career. Watson may not have such an amicable breakup with the Texans.

  1. He’s way, way, way past his prime, and he’s never been that guy who single handedly took over a big game in the biggest moments. Come playoff time his resume says he’s disappeared not the other way around. Nice guy – Yes… Dominating wrecking machine – NO

  2. Nah, because he can’t stay on the field long enough to make an impact nowadays. A 6-year, $100,000,000 contract? He robbed the Texans, and many of their fans won’t admit it.

  3. J.J. Watt is great on and off the field. Yes, he is past his prime, but someone will grab him. I love what he’s done to help people in the community, also.

    Some smart NFL team owner has the golden opportunity to sign BOTH these players.


    Watson is under contract, so no NFL team owner other than the Texans has the opportunity to sign him.

  5. Why would community activism take precedence over on field results? We can all agree he’s an outstanding citizen, but I want a guy who rises to the occasion, and he’s not that guy. Sorry Texans fans your love for this guy is misplaced, and maybe that’s why your team is consistently bounced from the playoffs.

  6. I wonder if he would take the veterans minimum for one year to play with his brother in Pittsburgh.

  7. Never dominated. Never made big game plays. Half the time he wasn’t even playing in the big games. There are oodles of people above him in the stat department. No HOF. If he is first ballot then Justin Houston better be as well. Same stats.

  8. Alright JJ, just make sure to put your money where your mouth is now. If you truly care about winning, then really there’s only a handful of franchise you can really sign with, AND a) you’ll need to sign for LESS $$ than you’re used to making and b) you’ll probably be utilized in 3rd-down and obvious passing situations only. I don’t want to see you signing on for a 5-11 franchise for the most money, and then in your opening talk about “How great the winning culture is here!”

  9. Oh yeah I forgot about DeShaun the GM. Watt should do his body a favor and retire. Go into philanthropy while people still know you as a player.
