The Houston Texans have already gotten rid of of head coach Bill O’Brien, but the team still has a lot more to do to become competitive again.
That means possibly trading away some players to make it happen. Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has become an icon to the city of Houston, but with the team headed nowhere fast, he might be on his way out of town.
Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Watt was asked to address that possibility. The three-time Defensive Player of the Year stated that he is committed to bringing a title to the city.
“My goal since I got here was to bring a championship to the Houston Texans,” Watt said. “That will remain my goal until I’m not a Houston Texan.”
Watt has three sacks in six games, but the Texans have only one win so far.
Watt has been a staple of defensive excellence during his time in the league, but some might say his biggest contribution was him helping to raise millions of dollars in relief for hurricane victims in the city of Houston. For his efforts that year, he won the prestigious Walter Payton Man of the Year award.
