Here is the best offer JJ Watt has reportedly received
J.J. Watt’s phone has not stopped buzzing since the Houston Texans released him, and at least one team has already talked numbers with the star defensive lineman. He probably liked what he heard.
Watt has received several offers, according to ESPN’s Dianna Russini. The best one at the moment would pay the 31-year-old between $15-16 million per year.
That salary would easily place Watt among the 10 highest-paid defensive linemen in football. Of course, guaranteed money is all that really matters, so we would have to know more details of the offer to evaluate it.
There has been a lot of talk about Watt joining his brothers T.J. and Derek with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it sounds like these three teams are more likely suitors.
Watt seems to be enjoying his first experience with free agency, as evidenced by some of the awesome tweets he has sent since Houston parted ways with him.
