Where will J.J. Watt land after Texans release?
A chaotic offseason in Houston took another drastic turn Friday.
In his announcement, Watt thanked the city of Houston, telling fans he wanted them to hear the news from him.
The Texans hired Baltimore Ravens assistant David Culley as head coach in January. Houston had fired head coach Bill O'Brien following an 0-4 start to the 2020 season.
Watt, a three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, finished the 2021 season with five sacks, a pick-six and two forced fumbles. In his career, Watt has tallied 101 sacks, second to only Von Miller's total since he was drafted in 2011.
FOX Sports gambling analyst and former NFL offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz points out that a family reunion in Pittsburgh might not be as likely as people think – and this year's other Super Bowl squad should be on that list.
"Everyone makes the connection of Watt to the Steelers because of his brothers. With the Steelers' cap situation and already having an excellent defensive line, though, I don't see it," Schwartz said. "The one team left off the odds list that should be on there is the Kansas City Chiefs.
"They have a need to improve the pass rush and will be a contender next season. And the Chiefs have been willing to improve their roster every offseason under Andy Reid."
Watt's stunning announcement drew reaction from across the NFL and sports world.
This is a developing story.
