The longtime Texans star said he approached the team brass asking to be released from the final year of his contract. Houston obliged, rather than opting to trade him for a future draft pick.
However, there are many teams around the league that could use a player like J.J. Watt. On Friday night, ESPN’s Ed Werder reported that a dozen teams have already shown interest in Watt.
He listed the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans.

Earlier Friday afternoon, ESPN’s Marcus Spears highlighted the Kansas City Chiefs as an “intriguing” fit for Watt.
“The most intriguing fit for me is Kansas City,” Spears said on NFL Live. “No. 1 because I watched the Super Bowl and they do need pass rush help. You have Chris Jones on that defensive line along with Frank Clark who can rush the passer.”
Multiple reports have suggested that Watt wants one thing: to play for a competitive team. Most teams – even those that made a run to the playoffs – would be better with Watt on the roster.
Where will he play next?
