Re: JJ Watt in the future.
There's a big difference between Mario's situation and Watts situation most likely?
I would say at this point Watt is playing healthy and at a way higher level than Mario has to start a season.
Also Mario had a lot of other players that were more impactful to the team heading into FA the following year which meant Mario had to be expendable.
So I would say it depends on the health of JJ + his impact to our team (can we play great D without him) + what's the FA situation for the team overall at that point.
