Despite rumors sending him north, J.J. Watt signed with Arizona.
The former three-time Defender of the Year has found a new home. J.J. Watt has finally decided to sign with the Cardinals and join his former teammate DeAndre Hopkins. He announced it himself on his Twitter account, using a simple photograph.
Earlier in the day a post on Peloton, a social network specializing in physical conditioning, had directed observers to Cleveland, Green Bay and Buffalo. But finally Watt confirms it: the only reliable source is himself.
According to NBC Sports. com the contract would cover two years, for an amount of $ 31 million, including $ 23 million guaranteed.
The Cardinals started the 2020 season well, but ended the campaign with a poor record of 8 wins for 8 losses and missed the playoffs. Watt has made it clear his desire to chase a title, so he sees his new club as a challenger in the short term.
