Eventually, but not next year. The CBA prohibits any modifications or amendments to a rookie contract until after the completion of the third year.

Even if they wanted to, the Texans couldn't give him a raise until the 2014 season.

Class act with kids from Newtown




Quote:
Watt tweeted the above picture with the caption, "Our friends from Newtown, CT." He told USA Today, "I just wanted to give them a normal day."
This isn't the first time Watt remembered the town affected by the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School just two weeks ago. For the Texans' Week 15 win over the Colts, Watt had "Newtown, CT," scrawled onto his gloves.

The NFL is so biased. JJ Watt is having the most dominant season by a D-Line player i have ever seen. I didnt really see the bruce Smith or Reggie White years, But as far as modern day era i'd say Watt is in a class of his own.

He will not win the MVP (which i think he 100% deserves) because the NFL is about glamour and regardless of how fun it is to watch JJ Watt dominate every team he plays they would rather see a Manning or Peterson win MVP.

People want to point out that he had no sacks against the patriots, this is true, but ask brady how it feels to be hit by Watt over and over again. Its a shame that he has no chance at MVP and i think this is proff that no defensive player will ever win the award again.

Reggie White in his glory years was totally dominate. I guess Bruce Smith was, but I don't remember actually watching him a whole lot like I remember watching White. Watt is doing the same thing White used to do, and that is change games all by himself.

Reggie White is the best I've ever seen. I would say JJ has a chance to pass him but it will take a decade + at this level of play.

That 2011 Draft Class has really produced some outstanding pass rushers, one could argue the best of all time

Mr. Wattage needs to just nail down about 5 sacks today and put this behind him.

Tough to do when you've got 3 guys all over you and your secondary is getting picked apart.

Dude deserved better than what his teammates gave him today.
