Anyways, we don't have to worry about Watt going anywhere. He's a good guy, and is on a rookie deal for another few years. Rotoworld: 7/31/2011: Signed a four-year, $11.23 million contract. The deal included a $6.67 million signing bonus. 2012: $885,795, 2013: $1,396,590, 2014: $1,907,385, 2015: Free Agent

"So watt will happen in 2015" you might ask, well lemme show you.

Lucky for the Texans, Watt was pick number 11. So after his third year (2013/14 offseason), I expect the Texans to exercise this 5th year option on Watt and lock him down for an extra year for relatively cheap. In 2009-2010, the 3-25 total salary (bonuses included) average of defensive ends was 7.2 million. That number will be higher in 2015, and probably around 9 million.

Come 2016, who knows how much he will be worth then, but if he has several All-Pro honors, defensive player of the year, and possibly an MVP on his mantle, he could get a Mario Williams type of deal. Or he might just get franchised for 10+ million. Lots of options for the team to retain him, but that 5th year rookie option is very helpful to the team, as it works like an extra franchise tag, without actually using the tag. In any case, I can't see Watt getting away from the Texans, so I wouldn't worry about it. Enjoy the season, and the seasons to come, Watt will be a Texan for a loooooong time.
Agree. Watt ain't going anywhere. Let's relax and enjoy him play.
