J.J. Watt has spent his entire professional career wearing a Houston Texans uniform. However, a report indicates that the star defensive end may have worn that jersey for the last time.

Below are the reports, which surfaced on Saturday morning. The news comes a few days after quarterback Deshaun Watson said he wanted a trade out of Houston.

The belief with teammates and coaches I’ve spoken to is that Watt has played his last game as a Texan. A few told me that was the mood in the locker room after their final game. https://t.co/vBsrflwyf4
