One former Texans coach is not happy for J.J. Watt.

On Monday afternoon it was revealed that Watt had decided to sign with the Arizona Cardinals in a deal that is going to pay the former Texans defensive end very handsomely.


NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Watt is signing a two-year deal worth $31 million, with $23 million guaranteed. The Cardinals later announced the two sides had agreed to a deal.

Watt could have been enticed by a number of different factors, starting with his former Texans teammate who was sent west in a stunning trade about a year ago. He might have also raised an eyebrow at the thought of teaming up with incredibly productive edge rusher Chandler Jones to create a nightmarish duo

After the signing, Bills beat writer Josh Reed spoke to a former Texans coach who ripped Watt for being “selfish” and someone “who only cared about his stats.”

This quote from the anonymous coach is pretty surprising considering how well-liked Watt is in the locker room.
