Three Watt brothers in Pittsburgh? It’s a possibility

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

A Watt reunion in Pittsburgh? It’s very well possible.

Two brothers already play for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Could the third brother be added this off-season?

T.J. Watt has told free-agent defensive end to come to Pittsburgh. Watt made the gesture through a GIF from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Presently, T.J. Watt and Derek Watt play for the Steelers. On Friday, their older brother J.J. Watt requested and received his release from the Houston Texans.

If the star defensive end signs with the Steelers after a decade with the Texans, he would improve their already very talented defense.

Two of the Watt brothers would come off of the edge for the Steelers if he signs there. J.J. would come off as a defensive end in their 3-4 scheme.

T.J. Watt — who lost the 2020 Defensive Player of the Award to Los Angeles Rams’ Aaron Donald — would come off the edge as a linebacker.

The Steelers already a lot of money invested in the defensive end position in Cameron Heyward and Stephon Tuitt. However, that does not necessarily rule out the team to sign Watt.

He’ll have to decide if he wants to potentially take a short-term deal with the Steelers to be reunited with his brother. Or sign a deal with another team, where he could earn more money — as well as potentially have a chance to win the Super Bowl.

If the Watt brothers are going to all play together in the NFL, the time would be now. Just one day ago, the possibility that they could play together was slim.

After J.J. departs from the Texans, it’s even more possible than before.
