J.J. Watt: The one thing I want for Deshaun Watson is to be happy

Defensive end J.J. Watt negotiated his own departure from the Texans and was all smiles during his introductory press conference with the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Among the reasons why Watt is happy to be in Arizona is the presence of quarterback Kyler Murray, who he called extremely talented and capable of getting even better in his third season. Watt played with another good quarterback in Houston and Deshaun Watson‘s name came up during the press conference as well.

Watson would also like to leave the Texans, but hasn’t been able to extricate himself thus far. Watt said he hopes that Watson gets whatever it takes to make him happy.

“I love Deshaun. I love Deshaun,” Watt said. “We speak often. He’s an incredible player, but he’s an incredible person. He’s a special human being and he’s obviously unbelievably talented as an athlete, but he is also just a great person. And I tell him, the one thing I want for Deshaun Watson is for him to be happy. He deserves it and I want him to be happy. So whatever that looks like for him, that’s what I want for him.”

At this point, there’s no alignment between what would make Watson happy and what will make the Texans happy. Until that changes, Watson won’t be having anything like the happy scene Watt got to take in on Tuesday.

  1. Watson is making himself unhappy by acting like a child. He should have looked at what Bill O’Brien did to the team and not signed a long term deal.
    That’s on Watson, don’t take the money and cry 6 months after signing.

  2. If I was being paid millions to play football I don’t know how I could be anything but happy.

  3. Good luck. Watson comes off like one of those people who are only happy when they’re complaining.

  4. One thing that I want from Watson is for him to give me a million dollars but that gonna happen either

  5. “I love you so much, I just want you to be happy” It’s like a break up

  6. “Good luck. Watson comes off like one of those people who are only happy when they’re complaining.”

    Couldn’t disagree more. Have we actually heard him complain publicly? Has he made any statements himself that could be considered complaining? By all accounts he’s a great, stand up guy who is actually rather introverted when it comes to dealing with adversity. This current situation is a result of years of serious mismanagement by the Texans front office/coaching staff, and came to a head when owner guy, unprompted, made promises to Watson that he apparently had no intention on making good on.

  7. How can he possibly be happy making multi-millions of dollars by just playing a game?
