It was reported that J.J. Watt had narrowed his decision down to three teams–the Browns, Packers and Bills. The veteran edge rusher has tricked us all, and he signed a two-year contract reportedly worth $31 million, with $23 million guaranteed.
J.J Watt has already showed up in Arizona, and shared a message to the fan base.
“I’m very excited,” Watt said in a video released by the team’s official Twitter account. “My wife and I are very excited to be here. Mr. Bidwill, Steve [Keim], everybody here, has been unbelievable so far, and I’m just excited to get started. I’m very excited to get started, get to work, get to know the people of Arizona and to go to work to try to win a championship.
“The one thing I can promise you is I’m gonna work my ass off every single day to make you proud. Very proud to be part of the Bird Gang and the Red Sea. So let’s get started.”

J.J. Watt might be on the decline, but he still has a lot to offer a young Cardinals team trying to make the next leap into becoming a contender. The NFC West is now wide open, with the 49ers, Seahawks, Rams, and Cardinals all have stacked rosters.
It should be a fun year in the NFL next season, and J.J. Watt joining the Arizona Cardinals is only going to add to that.
