The title says it all. The Pittsburgh Steelers are interested in JJ Watt. Seriously, who wouldn’t be?
From NFL sources
NFL sources: Approximately a dozen teams have shown interest in JJ Watt since he became an immediate unrestricted free agent. Included among those teams are the #Steelers, #Browns, #Bills and #Titans.

The Steelers currently employ two of JJ’s closest friends, his brothers Derek and TJ Watt, so why wouldn’t he want to land in Pittsburgh.
The only issue seems to be whether JJ considers the Steelers to be Super Bowl contenders, and if the Steelers can somehow manage to come up with enough salary cap room to sign him.
Now, obviously the Steelers would always have interest in a player of JJ’s caliber, but I was sort of surprised that they came out in an initial report as being interested. Now whether that’s just Ed Werder assuming or he actually knows is debatable.
Watt will reportedly take the weekend to collect his thoughts and then get into it on Monday.
