J.J. Watt could command $16 million in free agency

OK, Vikings fans, there is some excellent news and problem.

The problem is that if J.J. Watt deserves in between $15-16 million a year, he is more than likely out of Minnesota’s cost variety.

Fortunately: A minimum of the Bears, Packers and Lions likewise appear to be strapped for money this offseason, so Watt heading to any of those groups for that cost would be tough to work out at the minute. Naturally, that can alter if a group wishes to restructure, cut or trade gamers to maximize area for Watt.

As reported by ESPN’s Dianna Russini, Watt has actually had a number of deals from groups, with the very best one being $15-16 million annually.

ESPN Radio’s John Clayton stated Buffalo, Green Bay and Tennessee are the top-three groups in regards to his prospective landing areas. The Raiders were tabbed as a dark horse.

Watt is not the unstoppable force he as soon as was, however the protective lineman still appears efficient in working in pass, whether that suggests pushing the quarterback or batting down passes. Watt likewise had a run defense grade of 81 on PFF. He’d be a significant addition for a group in requirement of producing pressure behind the line of skirmish.

It appears not likely that Watt’s next location will remain in the NFC North, presuming $15-16 million is what it takes. Minnesota might utilize a three-technique defensive deal with or another protective end, however it appears skeptical the group might land Watt for that high of a price.
