Here’s Proof J.J. Watt Will Have No Impact On The Cardinals | Sports Takes & News | TooAthletic.com
The NFL world was abuzz Monday when J.J. Watt announced on Twitter that he will be signing a two-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals after being released earlier this offseason by the Houston Texans. Watt, who turns 32 in less than three weeks, isn’t considered to be a major impact player by a select group of people after they have witnessed many of his seasons shortened by injuries. Is this proof that Watt won’t add much to the success or failures of the Cardinals, or do you believe Arizona is now the favorite to win their division, conference, and ever Super Bowl LVI?

Oddsmakers at BetMGM didn’t move on Monday to update their futures odds on the Arizona Cardinals after the team signed J.J. Watt; leaving them at a 20-1 to win the NFC Championship and 40-1 to win the Super Bowl next season. Watt will be playing in his 11th season in 2021, and the first of his career not in a Houston Texans uniform, yet no one at BetMGM felt it was necessary to adjust their odds in the early hours after his free agent deal was announced, telling me that at his age and with his worn-out body, what he brings to the table is more reputation than results.
J.J. Watt, to me, has always been more about making highlights than winning games, and like his former teammate Deshaun Watson, lives on putting up great stats in one-sided games to win awards without putting up stats in big games, which both often lost. Watt has a chance to be a part of a better defense on a better team in Arizona, but without finding impact players in the draft or in free agency, his signing will make for great headlines in March and very few highlights during the 2021 season; but chances are he won’t help the Cardinals become a better overall team.
Might J.J. Watt make a big play during the 2021 season that proves helpful in a win? Sure, but if I see him dancing around after a meaningless quarterback sack, then he will be the same player he was in Houston, which is why the Texans were so willing to let him walk without compensation.
Maybe I will be wrong, but when it comes to knowing what players will and won’t do, oddsmakers know much more than the rest of us do, and they are telling me J.J. Watt won’t have an impact on the Cardinals, which is why Arizona is not much better in March than they were in February.
