On Monday, J.J. Watt introduced information soccer followers have been ready to listen to for weeks: his subsequent vacation spot. Whereas the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns had been on the prime of many individuals’s lists of the place they thought Watt would land (and among the many groups talked about on that Peloton bio), the previous Houston Texan revealed he could be headed to Arizona to affix the Cardinals.

When you consider J.J., there are some things that come to thoughts. Amongst these, sacks and the quantity 99. He’ll be taking his pass-rushing skill to the desert, however he’ll have to depart his quantity within the mud.

No. 99 is retired in Arizona, so he’ll have to decide on one thing else. Following eight seasons with the Cardinals from 1939 to 1948, working again/defensive again Marshall Goldberg’s quantity was hung up for good. The All-Professional again gained a championship with the staff in 1947 — the staff’s final title.

Watt has worn No. 99 his complete profession to date within the NFL and in faculty at Wisconsin, so the quantity has been with him for some time.

Now this all leaves me with just a few questions:

  • Watt quantity will he select?
  • Watt are a few of his different favourite numbers?
  • Watt is tougher to decide on, a brand new staff or a brand new quantity?
  • Does he already know Watt quantity he’ll decide or is he nonetheless deciding?

OK, I will cease now, however I could not resist throwing in just a few “Watt” puns.

Following Watt’s submit in a Cardinal’s shirt, many had been photoshopping him in an Arizona jersey, utilizing the No. 99 of their pictures, although that’s possible not what he might be carrying when the 2021 NFL season begins.
