Houston Texas. Houston Texans defensive end J J Watt, 25, on Tuesday morning has signed a six year contract, $100 million contract extension with the football team that he has played for since he was selected in the first round of the 2011 National Football League Draft out of the University of Wisconsin.
Watt’s original rookie contract was going to expire at the end of the 2016 football season. His new contract will take effect starting in 2016. Watt in the three seasons he has been with the Texans has been one of the brightest stars on the football team.
The Texans have rewarded Watt with his new contract extension that will Watt one of the highest paid players in the National Football League since Watt is one of the most feared defensive pass rushers in the National Football League. The Texans are counting on Watt to serve as the coach for rookie linebacker Jadaveon Clowney, 21, in the 2014 regular football season.
The Texans will open the 2014 National Football League regular season by hosting the Washington Redskins on Sunday afternoon at NRG Stadium. At least the Texans will have a very good defensive team this year even though their chances of making the postseason will be at best a long shot.
If Clowney and Watt can stay healthy this football season, the Texans will more wins in the 2014 football season. The Texans in the 2013 regular finished the regular football season in last place with a record of 2-14.
