JJ Watt decided to end the free-agency speculation once it started spinning out of control.
Watt posted a photo of himself working out in a Cardinals shirt on Twitter with the caption, “source: me.” NFL Network reported that Watt signed a two-year, $31 million deal with $23 million guaranteed.
It is a little bit of a surprise, with Watt prioritizing a Super Bowl after 10 seasons with Texans and the Cardinals finishing 8-8 in 2020. The Texans released the 31-year-old Watt last month after he requested they do so.
Earlier in the day, a reporter posted a fake Peloton account that he thought was Watt’s, which indicated his final three were the Bills, Packers and Browns.
“i don’t own a bike. stop.” Watt wrote.
