J.J. Watt had a hilarious brotherly response to T.J. Watt’s huge contract

By Allison Koehler

Now that T.J. Watt is set to become the NFL’s highest-paid defender, there are some people he owes money to — at least, according to big brother J.J. Watt.

Moments after ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news that Watt and the Pittsburgh Steelers had brokered a deal worth north of $112 million, J.J. posted to Twitter: “Should I send those outstanding IOUs to your accountant or do you want to just Venmo me?”

Watt didn’t practice during training camp or play this preseason while negotiating to extend his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now, with this minor administrative business out of the way, Watt can go back to harassing quarterbacks starting Sunday with Buffalo Bills’ Josh Allen.
