JJ Watt put together a remarkable career in the NFL. Now, the star pass rusher and defensive end out of Wisconsin has decided it’s time to hang things up.

On Tuesday, Watt revealed the Christmas Day game against the Buccaneers was the first in attendance for his son Koa. He also tagged it as his “last ever NFL home game.”

“My heart is filled with nothing but love and gratitude,” Watt went on to say. “It’s been an absolute honor and a pleasure.”

After battling injuries in 2021, Watt responded with a fantastic campaign in 2022. He currently has 9.5 sacks and has started 14 games for the Arizona Cardinals. Nevertheless, it looks like he will retire at the end of the NFL season.

In his career, Watt has compiled 111.5 career sacks, 27 forced fumbles, 191 TFL and 2 interceptions. Watt also has 3 career defensive touchdowns and 3 receiving touchdowns.

A first-round pick out of Wisconsin in 2011, Watt has captured 3 Defensive Player of the Year Awards, all during his time with the Houston Texans. He was also the 2017 Walter Payton Man of the Year for his fundraising efforts in Houston following the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

A well-earned retirement and an impressive career for Watt.
