The latest chapter in the J.J. Watt free agency saga is the final one.
After weeks of social media speculation about where the star defensive end would sign, Watt announced on Twitter he will be joining the Arizona Cardinals:
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Watt’s deal with the Cardinals is a two-year, $31 million deal that includes $23 million guaranteed.
In Arizona, the three-time Defensive Player of the Year reunites with his former Houston Texans teammate DeAndre Hopkins and will play opposite of Chandler Jones, potentially giving the Cardinals one of the best pass-rushing duos in the NFL.
