Unsurprisingly, Watt is reportedly interested in playing for a contender.
According to ESPN insider Ed Werder, there are three things that potential teams have to check off in order to sign the talented pass rusher:
- Quarterback capable of winning the Super Bowl
- Good supporting cast
Earlier this week, Cleveland.com reported that there was mutual interest between Watt and the Browns.
The Browns have the cap space to give Watt the kind of money he wants. They also have one of the best supporting casts in the NFL.
But do they have a quarterback capable of winning a Super Bowl?
Watt's decision might come down to his thoughts on Baker Mayfield. If he's high on the Browns quarterback, there might not be a better landing spot than Cleveland.
Stephen A. Smith, meanwhile, is not a fan of the J.J. Watt-Browns rumors. He said earlier today that it would be a massive "betrayal" for J.J. to join the Browns while his brothers play for the rival Steelers.
Where do you see Watt playing in 2021?
