J.J. Watt Reportedly Seriously Considering Signing with the Cleveland Browns

JJ Watt heading to the Dawg Pound? Former Houston Texans defensive end JJ Watt has a chance to decide where he wants to play.  That opportunity doesn’t come around too often, especially for someone of JJ’s stature. The former defensive player of the year was released from Houston last week, and rumors are already flying on where he could possibly land.

Sideaction’s Latest:

Now it appears Watt may be considering signing in Cleveland.

Via Cleveland.com:

Released by the Texans on Friday, Watt is seriously considering the Browns as one of his options because they have a lot of what he wants, sources tell cleveland.com.

The two biggest things? Money and a potential Super Bowl. What’s more, they have a strong supporting cast and a positive environment. Check, check, check, and check.

The Browns were prepared to pay about that much last offseason to Jadeveon Clowney, making him a higher one-year offer than any other team, and a very competitive multiyear offer.

Watt, a five-time first-team All-Pro, certainly won’t come cheap, but he’d be worth it if he can get the Browns over the top and into that elusive Super Bowl.

Some think JJ is still trying to end up in Pittsburgh,  so he can play with his two brothers TJ and Derek.

Wherever he lands, the excitement over signing JJ will be huge.

The guy was once the best in the biz.
