JJ Watt was going to be a cap cut or traded. We've known that in Houston for a long time. He doesn't have value relative to his salary cap slot any longer. This is in no way comparable with an elite QB just entering his prime.— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) February 12, 2021
Good for you JJ Watt. You did all you could in Houston. The franchise’s greatest defensive player and it’s no discussion in that. You deserve to win, you deserve an organization that understands how that happens. Go get a ring Champ. It’s bout dang time!— Ryan Clark (@Realrclark25) February 12, 2021
