Texans’ J.J. Watt Says He is in Best Shape Since 2014



J.J. Watt

Houston Texans superstar defensive end J.J. Watt says that he is in the best shape he has been since the 2014 season, news that will make fans, and the organization excited.

Watt suffered a season-ending torn pectoral injury back in Week 8 of the 2019 season, but was re-activated ahead of the Texans’ Wild Card playoff game against the Buffalo Bills, a game in which he made a major impact, but the Texans were blown out in the Divisional round by the eventual Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.

Now, Watt says his “body feels as good as it has felt since probably 2014 or ’15 because “the quarantine situation has given me literally nothing to do but work out every day.”

“I mean, there’s nothing else you can do,” Watt said, according to ESPN’s Sarah Barshop. “You can’t go out, you can’t go to the movies, you can’t go to eat. So the workout program for me this offseason has been awesome because I’ve had a full offseason to do my workouts exactly how I needed to do them. I’ve been able to focus on my nutrition every single day. I’ve counted every single calorie the whole way. Basically tried to fully transform my body from the beginning of the offseason until now.

“It truly has been one of the best offseasons from a workout standpoint that I’ve ever had, and I’m very, very pleased about it. My body feels as good as it has felt since probably 2014, 2015, somewhere around there. So I’m really looking forward to getting into camp and just getting to work.”
