Welcome to the Valley, @JJWatt!— Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) March 1, 2021
We have agreed to terms with J.J. Watt on a two-year contract.
The defensive end parted ways with the Houston Texans in February, ending his 10-year run with the organization.
The 3 time NFL Defensive Player of the Year and face of the Houston Texans franchise announced his departure with a video on Twitter.
During last season, Watt expressed he was not interested in playing for a team going through a “rebuild.”
Watt had one year remaining on the contract with the Texans he signed in 2014. He was owed $17.5 million in 2021, but his salary was not guaranteed.
