JJ Watt is getting closer to figuring out which team he will like to take his talents to in 2021.

According to a report from ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler, the former Houston Texans defensive end is narrowing his list of potential teams and now has the Buffalo Bills as an emerging favorite.

Longtime NFL insider John Clayton reported that there were three frontrunners emerging for Watt.

“People are misinterpreting what I said on radio today. I said Tennessee, Green Bay and Buffalo were the leading teams for J.J. Watt but not the final three. Watt hasn’t narrowed his list. The Cleveland Browns are still in. So are the Raiders. He has a dozen teams after him,” he reported on Thursday.

ESPN NFL insider Dianna Russini reported that Watt has at least one offer on the table in the $15 million to $16 million range.

“Multiple sources told Russini that the most lucrative offer Watt currently has on the table is believed to be worth between $15 million and $16 million.”

The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year asked for and received his release from the Texans earlier this month, ending his tenure with the franchise that drafted him in 2011.
