Texans releasing JJ Watt


Process

I will suggest again that in his end-of-season press conference, McDermott was talking to Watt when he said

This place is a special place, surrounded by a special fan base, and where else would you rather come to play the best football of your career?  This is to me a great place to play if you're truly passionate and love the game of football.

A Watt Jersey would be an instant add to my collection. 

 

I think a jersey is more valuable than the player at this point unless he is willing to take a lot less than he was overpaid by Texans.

Why would he choose Buffalo?  Because have one of the best rehab teams in NFL and he uses it a lot.

 

Plus he has no chance of being same team as De$haun Wat$on.

Love JJ Watt but at this stage I think he is a 3-4 end only. He could play some 3 tech in a 4 man front in Buffalo but I am not sure that is where our need really is. I don't think at this stage in his career he is a 4-3 Edge guy.

He completed 2020 with the second most snaps in his career. As part of a rotation I am very confident McDermott can find a place for him.

8th in the NFL as an edge rusher at pressure rate (Hughes was 2nd). Cut Addison, and get Watt. Hughes, Watt, Epenesa, Jefferson would make a good rotation. Hopefully Star comes back, which free up Oliver and the LBs

 

But he wasn't an "edge rusher". He was playing as an end in a 3-4 and attacking the B gap.

And if he wants to come ring chase and play in the rotation and take $6.5m AAV I am all for signing him. If we are looking at JJ as the guy to give us the outside edge rush we have lacked then that isn't him at this stage for me.

I know I’m a pain in the butt with a bunch of fantasy stuff, but this one makes sense.  STOP GETTING ME SO EXCITED!

 

I’m in boys!  Make it happen Beane.  I hate this as I sound like a Madden kid.  Just think about Star, Oliver, Jerrah (ours), and JJ.  Edmunds would have a cake walk in his job.  Jefferson, Butler, and even Addison should start worrying.  Cut Brown and maybe we could even keep Williams, Mongo, Ford comes back, draft what we need, and sign a TE in FA. 
 

This morning they pointed out an experienced TE is critical as so few blow up in the draft.

 

Cant wait for September, maybe.

This guy annoys me.... that being said he'd be a big help to the defensive line despite his injury history and slight decline in production. 

I think this supposed 'decline in production' is a direct result of who he was playing with...name one other texans defensive linemen lol I cant...watt was probably doubled all season

He will end up in Tampa Pittsburgh Green Bay or here.  He will want to go to a contender where he will start. 

Contender yes.    Buffalo will probably talk to him if he is interested.   
 

Starting is not important.  He is now a situational player that would benefit from rotation.  It will prolong his career. He is a veteran and he knows that.

They have definitely lost talent on that line the last two years with Reader and Clowney going. They still have Merciless as an edge rushing linebacker. I don't think he is the player he was a couple of years back but he can still be a very effective player if used correctly. Just not sure that "correctly" is rushing off the edge in a 4-3.
