NFL's JJ Watt Joins Arizona Cardinals After Being Released From Houston Texans After 10 Seasons

JJ Watt is joining a new team!

The 31-year-old pass-rusher announced on Twitter that he had signed with the Arizona Cardinals by sharing a photo of himself wearing a Cardinals’ shirt with the caption, “Source: me.”

Although terms were not disclosed, ESPN reports that the deal is worth $31 million and includes $23 million guaranteed.

Last month, JJ parted ways with the Houston Texans. He had played with the team for 10 seasons.

“The connection I have with the people of Houston is special, and I will never take that for granted because I know how rare it is. I just want you to know that I love you and I appreciate you,” JJ said in a video posted to Twitter. “I want to thank the McNair family for drafting me and giving me my first opportunity in the NFL. Thank you, Houston.”

At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, JJ and his wife Kealia Ohai made a generous donation to the Houston food bank.
