JJ Watt essentially said, take a seat, NFL media and reporters and let me break my own story.

Watt will sign a 2-year 31 million dollar deal with the Arizona Cardinals and reunite with former Houston Texans teammate DeAndre Hopkins. Hopkins put out an Instagram post last week that said, "let's finished what we started."
It isn't news that everyone wants out of Houston, but, surprisingly, Watt chose the Cardinals after speculation that he wanted to go back to Wisconsin and join the Packers or squad up with both his brothers in Pittsburgh.
Watt acknowledged that being a free agent has a lot that comes with it, but for a 31-year-old defensive lineman that has won three NFL DPOY, he deserved the right to pick where he wants to go.
free agency is wild.

Now in the NFC and arguably the toughest division in football with the Rams, 49ers, and Seahawks, the Cardinals have their big hitters to make a serious playoff push.
