J.J. Watt’s time with the Houston Texans is over and FanDuel Colorado Sportsbook has odds on the three-time Defensive Player of the Year’s next destination. Although Watt is not the same player he was when he was winning DPOY year in and year out, he’s still an excellent defensive end who can make a difference.
The Browns are the early favorite to sign the five-time All-Pro, but the Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers, and a few wild cards could make things interesting. Where will he end up next season?

Odds On J.J. Watt’s Next Team
Cleveland Browns -200
Pittsburgh Steelers +350
Green Bay Packers +400
Buffalo Bills +650
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +650
Tennessee Titans +750
Baltimore Ravens +850
Dallas Cowboys +1000
Indianapolis Colts +1600
Los Angeles Rams +1600
Washington Football Team +1600
Kansas City Chiefs +2500
Where do we start with this list? There are reports that Watt is “considering” the Cleveland Browns right now. The Browns have the cap space to sign Watt and they are only a few pieces away from being a legitimate Super Bowl contender. Watt and Myles Garrett would make for a scary duo.
But speaking of potential duos, the Pittsburgh Steelers are not far behind the Browns. J.J. Watt’s brothers, T.J. and Derek, both play for the Steelers. Derek is a fullback, but J.J. would be playing opposite his brother T.J., who led the NFL in sacks in 2020, on the defensive line.
If Watt is interested in returning home to Wisconsin, the Green Bay Packers are a possible landing spot. The Packers were knocking on the doorstep of the Super Bowl for a second consecutive year.
There are still a few wild cards in the mix though. If Watt is hellbent on winning a Super Bowl he could link up with Tom Brady in Tampa Bay or try to help the Kansas City Chiefs win their second in three years. The Wisconsin native could even make his way out west to join Aaron Donald on the Los Angeles Rams.
Teams can begin negotiating with free agents on March 15. Until then, bettors can try to predict where Watt will end up next.
