J.J. Watt, Texans reportedly strike 6-year, $100M deal

Defensive end J.J. Watt has reportedly agreed to a long-term contract extension with the Houston Texans, and the numbers are as eye-popping as Watt's play has been during his young NFL career.

Houston Chronicle beat writer John McClain reported that the deal is for six years at $100 million, with $51.876 million guaranteed.
Watt, the 2012 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, has 36.5 sacks in three NFL seasons.

Around The NFL will have more on this story as it develops.

“@Jacobs71: Now the argument becomes where is Justin Houston compared to JJ Watt in terms of pass rushers. Get out the stats and Pro Bowls.”

I love Houston, he's probably my favorite Chief atm, but comparing him to Watt is silly.

He does way more then just pass rush.

Not at all close to a comparable player for Houston's worth.

Watt is a all around player. Houston can just pass rush

Well, considering Tom Condon is the agent for both players.

Justin Houston is one of the best 3-4 OLBs when it comes to run D in the league.

“@Jacobs71: I believe this will help the Justin Houston situation. The floor is Hali's contract. The ceiling can't pass Watt.”

Would I tell Alex to go fuck himself if it meant I had the opportunity to sign JJ Watt to my team for 6 years and $99 million?

Instantly.

Reminds me of that old joke:

A man comes home from work. He bursts into the door and joyfully exclaims, "Honey! Pack your bags! I've just won the lottery!" His wife squeals with glee, "That's wonderful! What should I pack?" The man goes, "I don't care, just pack your bags and get the fuck out!"

Are you thinking of Hali? Houston is an all around player. Watt does everything better, but Houston is good in run support and serviceable in pass coverage.

Is he?

What kind of impact did he have on Houston's season last year when their QB went into the toilet?

Giving a guy like Watt that kind of money will absolutely cripple a team.

Well, I doubt that he is going to turn into the next Haynesworth. Good job locking him up.

I agree. football is a team sport (except for QB)

If Houston asks for something similar, he better take a fucken walk.

Since the NFL has engineered the league to be centered on the QB and pass-first these days, pass rushers are the next most valuable commodity.

While I do not believe Watt's contract matters in the Justin Houston negotiations, I do think it's humorous that we could tag Houston for 6 years (if that were legal) and he'd still cost less.

:spock: She would get half his money.

The joke should be Girl Friend.
