Two of the names that have dominated the NFL offseason already both played for the Houston Texans last season and both plan on changing that in the coming year. However, fans feel very different about what those players can do for a new team.
After getting his release from the Texans, J.J. Watt signed with the Arizona Cardinals, a move that seemingly helps push the team closer to a potential Super Bowl. But according to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, the addition of the former Defensive Player of the Year doesn’t automatically make the Cardinals a Super Bowl contender.
Earlier in the offseason, only 49 percent of fans said Watt was still an elite defensive player. Personally, I’m really excited to see what Watt does in a new location AND alongside Chandler Jones.
Fans feel a bit better about Watt’s former teammate, Deshaun Watson. The Texans’ quarterback has demanded a trade, but is yet to be dealt. Similarly, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson appears to want a new team.
When fans were asked which of the two Pro Bowl quarterbacks would make a bigger impact on a new team, a slight majority believe it would be Watson.
Which quarterback would you rather have?
