According to Profootballtalk.com, the Houston Texans are still waiting to extend the contract of Pro-Bowl defensive end, J.J. Watt. Watt currently has two years left on his contract, if they decide to exercise his fifth year option.
Over the last two years Watt has combined for 31 sacks and 23 pass deflections, however, he is slated to make only $1.9 million for the 2014 season, and $6.9 million for the 2015 season. Many analysts see him as the best defensive player in the league, one that disrupts the passing game of every team he faces, so at these prices the Texans are basically stealing from Watt.
The Texans ended the 2013 season with a 2 – 14 record, good enough for the number one pick in the draft. They drafted another defensive end, former University of South Carolina great Jadeveon Clowney. The hopes were that Clowney and Watt could become the most feared ends in the league. However, with the Texans stubbornness in giving Watt the money he deserves, they might run into a problem with Watt becoming unhappy with his situation. Only time will be able to tell how this predicament plays out.
