BREAKING: J.J. Watt Released By Houston Texans (VIDEO)
J.J. Watt is no longer a Houston Texan.
In a mutual agreement between the superstar pass-rusher and the Texans organization, the two partied have agreed to part ways. Watt made the announcement in a video which has been posted to social media.
In the clip, he claims that the move was taken following a meeting between himself and Texans owner Bob McNair, as both sides agreed that this was the best way for them to proceed.
Here’s the video:
Watt is now a free agent, and there’s undoubtedly going to be a ton of interest in the three-time defensive player of the year. He’ll no doubt be one of the hottest commodities on the market this offseason.
Watt spent 10 season with the Texans after being drafted by the team in the first round (11th overall) of the 2011 draft. During his time there, he led the NFL in sacks on three occasions, and made it to five Pro Bowls. He was also named a first team All Pro five times, and a second team All Pro three times.
Watt also did plenty of charity work in the Houston area. He will be missed.
