Pittsburgh Business Offers To Change Name If JJ Watt Joins Steelers

Defensive end J.J. Watt is no longer a member of the Houston Texans, making him the lone free agent of the NFL’s three Watt brothers. The other two, T.J. and Derek, play for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

And now, a Pittsburgh business is offering to change its name if J.J. joins his Steeler siblings. That business would be none other than Primanti Bros., which tweeted at T.J. and Derek, making a plea for them to bring in J.J.

If all three Watts do end up on the Steelers, Primanti Bros. promises to become “Watt Bros.”

J.J. once discussed the possibility of playing with T.J., also a defensive lineman, and Derek, a running back, during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

“Derek and T.J. have played together in high school, college, and the NFL, which is unbelievable, but we never all played on the same team,” J.J. Watt said. “I’m not sure it’s physically possible just from a bantering standpoint. … Just, like, childhood games.”

Along with the Steelers, Watt has been linked to the Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and multiple others.
