Tampa Bay Buccaneers Picked As A Likely Destination For Texans’ JJ Watt
The Tampa Bay Bucs are getting set to play in the Super Bowl and it’s hard to think that this team could win it all and quite possibly be even better next season.
J.J. Watt has likely played his final game for the Texans as he has one more year left on his contract for $17.5 million, but none of it is guaranteed. Because of that, his name has come up as possibly being traded elsewhere.
JJ Watt has been very complimentary of Tom Brady, much like the tweet he sent out following the Bucs’ 31-26 NFC Championship win at Green Bay on Jan. 24.
Brady once donated $100,000 for Watt’s Hurricane Harvey fund in 2017 after the hurricane devastated the city of Houston.
As of right now, Ndamukong Suh is playing this season on a one-year deal and just turned 34, while Watt being turning 32, The Bucs would be getting younger at the position and a whole lot better with a determined watt who is eager to be on a winning team at this stage of his career.
CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora portrayed a potential trade as a foregone conclusion.
“It’s a wrap,” a source with knowledge of the situation told him. “He knows he only has so many games left and he is ready to go and try to win. The guys in that locker room are bracing for it.”
