JJ and TJ Watt to be on a Wheaties Box as first-ever brother pair to be featured
JJ and TJ Watt will make history as the first-ever brother pair to be featured on the Wheaties Box.
The former Wisconsin players have enjoyed successful NFL careers. JJ was the No. 11 overall pick in the 2011 draft and enjoyed an 11-year professional football career before he retired in Arizona after last season. He recently joined CBS Sports in an analyst role for the upcoming season.
TJ was named the best defensive player in the league in 2021, was drafted in the first round to play alongside his brother Derek in Pittsburgh in 2017, where he became the first rookie starting linebacker for the team in 30 years.
The Watt brothers limited-edition Wheaties Box will be available at major retailers nationwide in early August for $6.19.
This is the first time that Wheaties has chosen a duo to be featured since 1934. They’re also joined by their brother Derek, who is featured on the back of the box. Past athletes highlighted on the Wheaties box include Simone Biles (2022), Michael Jordan (2021) and Lebron James (2020).
