JJ Watt googled ‘what do rich people buy?’ after signing new contract

JJ-Watt-Delivered-PizzasJJ Watt proved he is an absolute freak of nature in the Houston Texans’ win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday. The 25-year-old Pro Bowler recorded a sack, a fumble recover, a blocked extra point, a pass defensed and two tackles for losses. It was the type of day that made Watt a very rich man a week ago, even though he isn’t sure what to do with the $51.8 million guaranteed the Texans gave him.

Watt told Fox’s Laura Okmin on Sunday that he googled, “What do rich people buy?” after signing his six-year extension.

“I googled, ‘What do rich people buy,’ because I don’t feel like a rich person,” Watt said with a smile. “I don’t try to act like a rich person, so I don’t know what they buy. I really didn’t like the stuff I saw, so I think I’m going to just stick with my humble lifestyle and keep working out.”

Yes JJ, please do that. We don’t want you to change anything you’re doing, and I’m sure the Texans don’t either. It’s hard to believe Watt is only 25, because he has been arguably the most dominant player in the NFL for a few years now. He’s truly a rare talent.
