J.J. Watt reveals his thoughts on a potential NFL comeback

J.J. Watt retired following the 2022 season, but would he be willing to lace up his cleats again?

On Saturday night at his charity event in Sugar Land, Texas, the 35-year-old Watt didn’t rule out the possibility when asked whether he would consider returning to the gridiron. 

“I told (Texans head coach DeMeco Ryans) last year, I said, ‘Don’t call unless you absolutely need it, but if you ever do call, I’ll be there.’ But he knows not to call unless he absolutely needs it,” Watt said, via Will Kunkel of KRIV-TV in Houston. “This is the last year I’ll tell him that because I’m not gonna keep training the way I’ve been training. But he knows that if he ever truly does need it, I’ll be there for him.”
