JJ Watt says Kendrick Lamar texted him about his brother's National Football League debut

Postado Agosto 13, 2017

T.J. younger brother of one of the best defensive players in the National Football League, J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans, made his presence felt in his first game of National Football League action by recording not one, but two sacks in the first quarter of the game alone. I hope all is well.' And I looked and I was like, that was from Kendrick Lamar.

T.J. Watt, one of two of J.J.'s brothers that play in the National Football League, made his debut last night for the Pittsburgh Steelers and picked up a pair of sacks in just his first four plays. "So I go on Google and check it out, two sacks in four plays, so I texted him so he could see what Kendrick said after the game". At least he was after he had received a text from rapper Kendrick Lamar alerting him to the exceptional game his brother was having. "But it was just so cool". J.J. did eventually get to watch his brother - Derek Watt's preseason opener with the Los Angeles Chargers takes place Sunday - but didn't know if he should cheer for his brother or against the AFC rival Steelers. It was such an awesome moment to see [T.J.] go out there and do what he does. I wanted to tweet 'Congratulations on a great first game, ' but, at the same time, I'm like, 'No, you're on another team. "He's overcome a lot in his career".

Just minutes after T.J.'s first take down of the game, J.J. Watt took to Twitter to let the youngest of the three Watt brothers know he was watching.

Watt will get his first chance to face one of his brothers this season. On Christmas Day, the Texans will play the Steelers in Week 16 this season.

"That's a long way away and we're very much looking forward to that, obviously, but there's a long ways to go to get there", Watt said. "And somebody will have bragging rights at the end of the year, and hopefully it will be me".
