This could be a whole lot of something, but could also be nothing.

JJ Watt is free to sign wherever he wants after he asked and was granted his release by the Houston Texans a few days ago.

The veteran defensive end has now sparked rumors to the Chicago Bears after he spent Valentine’s weekend in Chicago with his wife, Kealia Ohai Watt.

This could mean nothing since his wife was already there because she plays for the Chicago Red Stars. She had immediate success with the team after being traded there, scoring two goals and two assists in only four regular season games. She is also under contract for the 2021 season.

According to spotrac.com, the Bears rank 22nd in the league in current cap space. That could prove t be a big issue with any deal they try and offer Watt, but the love for his wife might sway him to take a friendly deal just to be in the same city as her.

While his sack numbers were down in 2020, Watt was a significant presence in pass defense. His seven pass breakups were his highest total since 2014.

He managed to play in each of the Texans’ 16 games after missing half of the 2019 season with a torn pectoral.
