Arizona Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt has arrived in the Valley on Monday, the same day the team signed him to a two-year deal worth $31 million.
That’s quite the sentence to read back if you hadn’t been following the news of the day. Or just a sentence to really take in and absorb that Watt will be a Cardinal.
Team owner Michael Bidwill flew out on his private jet, picked up his newest signing and brought him to Arizona.
Watt landed later that afternoon and made his first statement as a member of the team.
“I’m very excited. My wife and I are very excited to be here,” he said. “Mr. Bidwill, (general manager) Steve (Keim), everybody here has been unbelievable so far and I’m just excited to get started. I’m very excited to get started, get to work, get to know the people of Arizona and to go to work to try and help them win a championship.”
“The one thing that I can promise you is I’m gonna work my ass off every single day to make you proud. Very proud to be a part of the Bird Gang and the Red Sea. Let’s get started.”
