99 Days until J.J. Watt is in the Texans Ring of Honor

JJ Watt career accolades graphic (1)

The main Twitter account tweeted out a silhouette and a date.


That tweet had everyone buzzing in the football world and especially those Texans fans that had the weekend to try to figure out what was happening.

On that date, it was announced that future Hall of Famer J.J. Watt would be inducted into the Texans Ring of Honor when his brother T.J.'s Pittsburgh Steelers squad comes to town.


That day is now 99 days away so the Texans creative brain trust got together to figure out how to adequately celebrate the three time NFL Defensive Player of the Year and newest inductee into the Ring of Honor alongside founder Bob McNair and all-time great Andre Johnson.

The meeting went something like this…I'm guessing.

"Hey, do we have video content and the like to cover 99 days leading up to Watt's Ring of Honor celebration?"

"Ummm, you think? Yes, we CERTAINLY do."


End meeting.

As such, to celebrate J.J's Ring of Honor ceremony in 99 days, we'll be putting out 99 days of J.J. Watt content. So, will we see…
