JJ Watt has to feel good this week that so many players around the league would love to have him on their team.

Two of the biggest stars are recruiting him right now.

The Dallas Cowboys could be among the teams interested, so DeMarcus Lawrence got the ball rolling on Twitter:

Stefon Diggs proved to be a valuable piece in the high-powered offense of the Buffalo Bills in 2020, and now he is looking to help out the defense.

Watt had the following to say about his release in Houston:

“I have sat down with the McNair family and I have asked them for my release, and we have mutually agreed to part ways at this time,” Watt said in a video posted to Twitter. “I came here 10 years ago as a kid from Wisconsin who’d never really been to Texas before. And now I can’t imagine my life without Texas in it. The way that you guys have treated me, besides draft night. I mean, you guys booed me on draft night. But every day after that, you treated me like family. And I truly feel like you’re my family.

“… I’m excited and looking forward to a new opportunity, and I’ve been working extremely hard. But at the same time, it is always tough to move on. And I just want you guys to know that I love you. I appreciate you. I appreciate the McNair family for drafting me and giving me my first opportunity in the NFL.”

JJ Watt landing on the Bills would make them even more of a contender after the season that had last season.

Out of the two teams, the Dallas Cowboys could use him badly as they bolstered one of the worst defenses in the 2020 season.
