Buffalo Bills fans having fun deciphering latest J.J. Watt tweet
Buffalo Bills fans are hanging on every word, or tweet, of J.J. Watt as they wait for the decision of the free agent defensive end. However, the former three-time Defensive Player of the Year appears to be enjoying free agency, which is the first time he has gotten to experience it in his career.
J.J. Watt spent the first 10 years in the NFL with the Houston Texans after they drafted him with the 11th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. During that time he became a cornerstone of the Texans’ defense and one of the top defensive players in the league.
While it was considered likely Watt was leaving Houston this offseason, it was surprising to see him released. The fact that he is now a free agent and can sign with any team has created a buzz and excitement around where J.J. Watt might call home next.
While Watt has said he wants to take his time and provided an example many can relate to when trying to decide what to eat, the latest tweet has many confused. This has opened the door for some wild theories and trying to read between the lines.
The tweet had Mitochondria trending on Twitter Tuesday afternoon due to these theories and these are some of the top guesses on what the latest tweet from J.J. Watt means.
The most creative certainly belongs to Ryan Talbot of New York Upstate who is able to connect Mitochondria to the Buffalo Bills general manager, Brandon Beane.
Jeremy White of WGR550 has a more direct connection by pointing out that the Buffalo Bills and Mitochondria have the same number of letters.
The last theory though may be the most compelling as this Bills fan points out that there is a Mitochondria Research Center in Buffalo as part of the Roswell Cancer Institute.
J.J. Watt deserves a great deal of credit for generating so much interest during a time of the year that is rather quiet. The fact that Buffalo Bills fans are hanging on every tweet also points to the fact of what he might mean to this team and where they are going.
The defensive line should be a point of focus this offseason and J.J. Watt would drastically improve this group. He is 32 years old but can still play at a high level and create pressure on opposing quarterbacks, which is something the Bills defense struggled to do consistently last year.
If the Buffalo Bills are going to add J.J. Watt this year, they will need to clear significant cap space. This will likely be the first indication that a deal could be on the horizon and these are some players that could be released.
