J.J. Watt excited for preseason lineup

The NFL revealed the upcoming preseason schedule this week and J.J. Watt is thrilled.

The Texans will not only open their 2019 preseason at Green Bay, they will also hold joint practices with the Packers. Watt, who grew up in Pewaukee and played at Wisconsin, can’t wait.

The three-time AP Defensive Player of the Year has never played an NFL game, regular or preseason, at Lambeau Field in his eight seasons with the Texans. Houston has only played in Green Bay twice in franchise history (2008, 2016). In 2016, Watt underwent season-ending surgery and did not travel with the team.

From the responses on Twitter, it looks as though Watt isn’t the only one excited about his return to Wisconsin.
