Defensive end and former Houston Texans star JJ Watt has announced that Sunday was his “last ever” NFL home game.
In a Twitter post on Tuesday, Watt announced his retirement, saying, “Koa’s first ever NFL game. My last ever NFL home game.”
He continued, saying, “My heart is filled with nothing but love and gratitude. It’s been an absolute honor and a pleasure.”
This comes after Watt reportedly made a tearful exit after Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers in which the Arizona Cardinals lost.
In October 2022, the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year had his heart shocked into rhythm after going into atrial fibrillation.
According to NBC Sports, Watt will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer. He was the Texans’ first-round draft pick in 2011, the Walter Payton Man of the Year in 2017, a five-time first-team All-Pro, and twice the league leader in sacks.
Koa’s first ever NFL game.
My last ever NFL home game.
My heart is filled with nothing but love and gratitude. It’s been an absolute honor and a pleasure.
