J.J. Watt becomes highest paid defensive player in NFL history.

It’s no secret that when you think of the Houston Texans, defense always comes to mind highlighted by their defensive-end, J.J. Watt. Before their season opener this Sunday at home against RG3 and the Washington Redskins, the Texans finally gave J.J. his big pay day, ensuring he was their true franchise player.

With the team still suffering from the lack of a real quarterback, their defense will definitely be one of the most exciting in 2014, with Watt joined by the no. 1 overall pick from last spring’s draft, JaDeveon Clowney.
