JJ Watt Signs Two-Year, $31 Million Deal With The Arizona Cardinals

Videos by OutKick

JJ Watt has just broken Twitter by reporting that he will be signing with the Arizona Cardinals. NFL insider Ian Rapoport reports that the deal is for two-years and $31 million, $21M guaranteed.

Watt now joins an Arizona defensive line that is expecting the return of 2019 Defensive Player of the Year Chandler Jones. The NFC West, which still isn’t complete since the 49ers are still looking for a quarterback on the trade market, will be terrifying this year.

If Russell Wilson wasn’t happy about how often he got hit last season–wait until he goes head-to-head with the rest of the NFC in 2021. Talk about star power.

  1. Choice of money over rings. 10 years from now “wish I had a ring”. I have a friend who was a special assistant to the G.M. for the Whitesoxs. Not one guy came in said I want a division championship. First request was how much money and what perks does my family get. You know that Gary

    • Agreed. I felt the same way when Rodgers signed that massive contract with GB a few years back. Why go for the money when you already have more than you could ever spend? Go for the ring!!! Get the best O-line money could buy. Lost a lot of respect for him over that.

    • True dat, Gary. He’ll never look down at his hand and see that SUPE RING. He would have gotten the money from any number of teams…including warm weather teams that have a shot…TENN, SF, LAR. Nashville could be celebrating next year and Clay might be on a float, and JJ will be practicing his short game.

  2. Well so much for prioritizing winning a SB in 2021. I guess money won out in the the end, but I believed JJ when he said it was about winning a championship. All the best to you in AZ. I hope you will be content with ending your career in a couple of years without a SB ring. Too bad.
