Recently retired former Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt’s list of accomplishments is second to none.
His resume includes three NFL Defensive Player of the Year awards, five first-team All-Pro selections, five Pro Bowl selections, two second-team All-Pro selections, two NFL sack titles and a spot in the Texans Ring of Honor.
But was he robbed of a league MVP? The Texans certainly think so as evidenced by a tweet from the team’s official X account on Thursday in which it included Watt’s 2014 stats — a season in which he had 20.5 sacks, led the league with 29 tackles for loss and was named an All-Pro as a defensive end and defensive tackle — and declared Watt should have won the MVP award.
Watt actually quote tweeted the team’s post with a surprising response to not winning the award that season, which went to former Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
