Former Houston Texans player JJ Watt has agreed to a deal with the Arizona Cardinals. It is a 2 year worth $31 million and $23 million guaranteed.
It may come to a shock to some. The Browns, Steelers, Packers, and Chiefs were mentioned as favorites to land Watt. DeAndre Hopkins may have done a little convincing to his decision. As they once again will become teammates.
Also, it was probably the best deal in terms of guaranteed money he could get on the market. Given his age, injury history, and recent decline in productivity.
Now the Cardinals could have a defensive front that can wreck havoc. Chandler Jones and JJ Watt rank #1 and #2 in the entire league with almost 200 sacks between them since 2012.
Jones 97 and Watt 95.5. Look out NFC West!!
