The race is heating up for the teams hoping to land NFL veteran pass rusher J.J. Watt, right? Well, maybe not.

Ten-year veteran J.J. Watt is definitely one of the most coveted free agents of this year’s crop.

Since his release from the Houston Texans, rumors have been consistently swirling about where the star is to continue his career. NFL teams looking to bolster their pass rush with a future Hall of Famer are definitely working behind the scenes to make a deal happen sooner than later.

We’ve known for a while now that Watt is likely looking for money and the chance to contend for a Super Bowl. Just days ago, he made it known which teams he would prefer not to be in business with.

On Monday morning, it looked like he’s is dropping hints about his hopeful new home.

Did J.J. Watt announce his three ideal teams in free agency?

Initially, it seemed Watt might be trying to keep everyone on their toes by going with the interesting platform of his Peloton bio.


Well, not so fast! The man himself has put a stop to the rumor.

It looked as though the Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers, and Buffalo Bills are the three teams left in the race for Watt. However, with Watt’s clarification, things have quickly gone back to status quo as we await updates.

In the meantime, we can all wait for the start of NFL free agency. The league’s new year begins on St. Patrick Day as free agents can start officially signing at 4 p.m. ET on the holiday. However, tampering is allowed starting March 15, which is when action will start being reported en masse.

Next. Washington expect to part ways with Alex Smith. dark
