LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - J.J. Watt has signed a 2-year deal worth $31 million with the Arizona Cardinals, according to ESPN.

ESPN reports the deal includes $23 million guaranteed.

The defensive end parted ways with the Houston Texans in February, ending his 10-year run with the organization.

The 3 time NFL Defensive Player of the Year and face of the Houston Texans franchise announced his departure with a video on Twitter.

During last season, Watt expressed he was not interested in playing for a team going through a “rebuild.”

Watt had one year remaining on the contract with the Texans he signed in 2014. He was owed $17.5 million in 2021, but his salary was not guaranteed.
