There is no question Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has been working hard in the offseason to help his team reach the Super Bowl in 2013. Not to mention, he would not mind repeating as Defensive Player of the Year after taking home the prestigious award in 2012. However, before he joins the Texans in training camp, Watt has decided to film some scenes with the cast members of The League, a comedy about fantasy football.
There have been several football players to make their primetime television debuts on The League with Watt joining the ranks. From a picture that @theleaguefx tweeted recently, it appears Watt is making fun of Andre’s (played by actor Paul Scheer) outfit. Watt appears to be a rather funny person so it should be a very entertaining episode to watch once it airs in the fall.
For any fans worried about Watt’s dedication to the game he loves, do not be scared. Watt tweeted the following regarding his involvement in various endorsements and television shows:
“In Hollywood taking advantage of many great opportunities, but always focused on what’s important. Can’t win if you don’t work #NotSatisfied”
Watt posted 81 total tackles, 20.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and 16 passes defended last season. It was the greatest defensive performance over the entirety of a season in the history of the Texans franchise.
Quarterback Jay Cutler and his wife Kristin Cavallari, who made an appearance on The League last season, will also be in an episode this fall.
