Walter Payton was a far more valuable running back.

$140 mil? I wouldn't pay a single player that, QB or not. Love Watt but that's lunacy.

Somebody is going to pay him, and it might as well be the Texans.

Agreed. Besides, I read somewhere that JJ Watt is a damned decent human being.

He'll be a damned decent human being until the first contract negotiations.

Unless I am mistaken, that's more than any QB or player in the league. It is impossible to pay him that kind of cash.

If the salary cap stays as is then yes, but it's not, so it won't be impossible. It would probably make it impossible to have him and a really good QB not on his rookie deal though.

Maybe a little off topic, but with the contracts getting inflated like they are I wonder if we'll see teams offer less per year but higher amounts guaranteed. Instead of $140 with $55 guaranteed, maybe $100-110 with $75-85. Same amount of time just a little less per year to help build a team around these guys.

I tend to agree. I dig JJ Watt and hope he's a Texan for his entire career, but once I step out of that fan bubble, the reality is that he's going to cost so much that it will ultimately mean the team cannot pay a premium at other positions.

We had arguably the best defensive player on the roster in 2013, and only managed 2 wins. If this was one of the four elite QBs, you could justify that much cap for one player. But, nobody on defense can alter a game like an elite QB, so a team has to balance what it wants with what it needs.

"It's really exciting to be back. It's always fun when football season is in the air," Watt said. "Just like the fans, we get excited about it, we get revved up and ready to go. It's going to be fun."

With a new coaching staff in place and a new defensive scheme to be learned, Watt was asked if he was more energized coming into this camp.

"Did I lack energy last year?" Watt responded. "That's my answer. I feel like I'm always energized. I get to play this game and you never know when it's going to end. Some kids think their career ends in high school, some kids in college, some people only get to play a few years in this league, some people get to play a long time. As long as I get an opportunity to play this game, I'm going to cherish it and I'm going to be energized to play it."
...
"Yes, obviously there is a little bit different feel," Watt said. "It's a good coaching staff. We have a good staff that works very hard, they're energetic, they're very smart and it's going to be fun to play for them. Obviously, a new coaching staff brings some change with it, but football is football. You go out there and you work as hard as you possibly can and try and be a great teammate. With a new staff, you want to get in the playbook as much as you can to learn the system.

"But the best part about training camp is every day is an opportunity to get better. Every single day that I step on the field, you get a chance to work on a skill. You get a chance to work on a technique, you get to improve and you get a few weeks to do so. There's really no time of year quite like training camp, where you can really dramatically improve just over a few weeks."
...
"We're looking to get as good as we can get every single day," Watt said. "We're going to work every single day to be as good as we can be. It all starts Saturday and we're going to go out to the practice field and we're going to try to improve that day and then Sunday and then Monday. It's not the answer that you want to hear, but that's what we're going to do."

Default All work and no play for JJ Watt

This article makes me appreciate JJ even more, which is pretty amazing in and of itself. He is truly one of the greats.

http://grantland.com/features/j-j-wa...4-nfl-preview/

By far my favorite quote:
Quote:
“When it comes down to that moment,” Watt says, “when it’s me against you, you know in your head whether you worked hard enough. You can try to lie to yourself. You can try to tell yourself that you put in the time. But you know — and so do I.”
