The best news this off-season is that TJ Watt is staying in Pittsburgh for at least five more seasons. That’s because he agreed to a contract today to make him the highest paid defensive player in NFL history.
But the story just got even better.
Steelers’ OLB T.J. Watt overruled his agents who believed they could get more money today, marched into the office of Steelers president Art Rooney and told him they had a deal. Then the NFL’s new highest-paid defensive player excused himself and announced he had to go work out.

Now if this story is indeed true it’s just INCREDIBLE. That’s it. There isn’t anything else to say about it.
I’m just going to sit here and smile knowing that this guy, this amazing man represents our team. Congratulations TJ. Well deserved.
