When longest-tenured Texan Andre Johnson got to NRG Stadium on Tuesday he made sure to find J.J. Watt to congratulate his teammate on his new $100 million contract.
The Texans are obviously hoping to have a much better season than the two win-win campaign they put together in 2013. And to do that, they’ll need big years from some of their young players.
Brian Cushing got his contract extension before the start of last season. J.J. Watt got his before the start of this year.
J.J. Watt rose into sight on a recent episode of HBO's "Hard Knocks" as he walked across the bridge over Kirby to the Texans' practice fields.
