HOUSTON, TEXAS – Ever since J.J. Watt joined the Houston Texans, our relationship with him has been a match made in heaven.

Whether a romance or a bro-mance, when it comes to J.J., we all feel the same way!

Everyone’s favorite defensive end spoke for the first time since last week’s back surgery, and it was a Texas-sized thank you tweet.

He wrote, “I know I won’t be able to respond directly to everyone, so I wanted to write one note to all of you to say thank you.”

Watt had a herniated disc repaired. And as tough as he is, recovery time is uncertain.  We know he’s gonna miss the entire pre-season. Which is a bummer for fans, but especially for Watt.

His tweet continued, “You make our jobs possible. You make them fun and you make difficult times like these much easier. So, thank you. I truly appreciate you.”

Pretty awesome thank you from a pretty awesome athlete. It’ll be even better when #99 is back on the field….and the next chapter of our love story unfolds.
