JJ Watt has told his social media followers he will be in the CBS NFL studios analyzing the league in which he dominated for the best part of a decade.
Though, not before releasing a six-second video joking he had been acquired by CVS — the ubiquitous pharmacy store.
Then came the actual announcement he will be joining the CBS team for its weekly Sunday coverage through the 2023 NFL season.
Watt will be alongside former pro football stars including Boomer Esiason, Phil Simms, Bill Cower and Nate Burleson.
‘I am extremely excited to be joining JB, Coach, Boomer, Phil and Nate; talk a little NFL this fall, talk a little life, have a global platform to make fun of my brothers on,’ Watt said in the video posted to Twitter.
JJ Watt revealed to his social media followers Friday that he would be joining the CBS crew
‘It really is a great opportunity,’ he added. ‘I’m very much looking forward to it. Very much looking forward to talking NFL with all you fans this fall — and hopefully giving you some knowledge, giving you a little experience and maybe some laughs along the way.’
In January, Watt made no secret of potentially wanting to get into TV in a Twitter Q&A, although he said he never really considered that option during his playing days.
‘Early in my career I said I would never do it, but I love the game too much to not be around it in some capacity,’ the former Defensive Player of the Year said.
Back in May, Watt and his wife, Kealia, became minority owners of Premier League team, Burnley Football Club.
Watt’s first team, the Houston Texans, will induct him into the Ring of Honor October 1 during halftime vs. Pittsburgh.
The former Wisconsin standout finished his career with 114.5 career sacks in 12 NFL seasons and is doubtlessly the Texans’ most decorated player in the franchise’s 21-year history.
Houston drafted him with the No. 11 overall pick in 2011. He played 10 seasons for the organization from 2011 to 2019, before finishing his pro football career in Arizona.
Watt will be the third member inducted into the Texans Ring of Honor, joining Robert C. McNair and Andre Johnson.
