In a stunning move Monday morning, former Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt tweeted a picture of himself working out in an Arizona Cardinals t-shirt, which was immediately followed by tweets from ESPN’s Adam Schefter and NFL Network’s Ian Rappoport confirming he’s signing with Arizona.
Entering his 11th season, Watt is a five-time first-team All-Pro defensive player and five-time Pro Bowler. He played in all 16 games last season, but health has been a concern for parts of his career. Watt missed 13 games in 2016, 11 games in 2017 and 8 games in 2019 due to injuries. When healthy, he’s one of the best defensive players in the game, recording 101 sacks and 25 forced fumbles in 128 career games.
