JJ Watt is one of the biggest names entering free agency on the defensive side of the ball and the latest reports suggest he is “seriously considering” one AFC North team.
Now, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, Watt is “seriously considering” signing with the Browns for a variety of reasons including salary cap, the team’s placement in the division, and playing opposite star defensive end Myles Garrett.
Watt asked for his release from the Houston Texans earlier this week.

If the news proves to be true, it will be interesting to see how that improves the Browns defensive unit in 2021.
And if the timeline for Watt’s signing is accurate, he will be signing with his new team sooner rather than later.
