J.J. Watt‘s tweets are sparking speculation as to his destination in free agency. But around the league, players are still putting their best foot forward to recruit him.

During an interview with Sports Radio 810 WHB, Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones said it would be nice to play next to Watt.

“J.J. Watt has been my favorite player throughout the league my whole career,” Jones said. “He was the Aaron Donald before Aaron Donald — he was J.J. Watt, you know? So he’s still my favorite player. Would I love to play with him if the opportunity presents itself? Hell yeah. But you never know how these things go. He’s a free agent for the first time in his career. He might want to play with his brother or something, I don’t know.”

Watt was the second player to win three AP defensive player of the year awards. Donald just became the third earlier this month.

Jones added that the first time he ever was star struck meeting a player was when he met Watt.

“That was crazy,” Jones said.

The Chiefs would be a destination where Watt would have a good shot at winning a Super Bowl. But they might not be able to pay him as much as a team like the Browns.

  1. He is worth millions. At this point of his career he is still trying to cash in that will say a lot about him. If he wants to win a SB there are only a few teams he should consider and the Chiefs would be at the top of that list.

  2. Winning a super bowl or playing with… wait for it… the Browns?!?…

    C’mon, I don’t see the browns beating the Chiefs or the Bills within the next 3 years. And after 3 years JJ is out of the league.

  3. chiefs already pay too much for that shabby D. need to drop jones and clarkes contracts and restart the D

  4. “At this point of his career he is still trying to cash in that will say a lot about him.”

    All it will say about him is that he wants compensation for his services. Being worth millions doesn’t change that. The NFL is a job, not a charity.

  5. I mean… theres always the Salary Cap Chris… and the Chiefs are way over. May you could take a pay cut?
