Justin James Watt is an NFL player for the Arizona Cardinals

Justin was born in Whitewater, Wisconsin on Christmas Day 1991 to parents Michelle and Gary Watt. 

Justin James Watt, popularly known as JJWatt, is an American football player at the defensive end position for the Houston Texans

In high school, he was a standout in both football and track. After graduating from there, he took a scholarship to play football at Central Michigan University

Here he played college football at the place of his dreams. When the Texans drafted him in 2011 JJWatt became a part of another dream come true 

After a stellar 2005 season, Watt was drafted by the Houston Texans as one of their 25 draft selections. He ended his rookie year with three sacks and 13 tackles while playing in all 16 games on defense, where he has played exclusively since.

In his sixth career game, he broke the all-time single-game passing yardage record (710 yards) and received the greatest amount of receiving yardage in NFL history.


Dwight Freeney and Justin James Watt (also known as J.J. Watt) were at least two of the best pass-rushers in the NFL. 


JJ Watt is expected to return to the Texans defense on Monday, according to a tweet from ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter. Knee injuries often have a lengthy recovery period, but Watt's notoriously durable body never seemed like a player that would miss considerable time.

J.J. Watt gave it his all, but the Arizona Cardinals lost 34-11 after a matchup against the LA Rams on Monday night at SoFi Stadium..

"The season was a big disaster," says J.J. Watt of the Cardinals. "There is no other way to put it."
