Watt, who became the only player in NFL history to notch 20 sacks in multiple seasons, took to Instagram last night to unveil the trophy he received for winning the league's top defensive honor. The fourth-year pro out of Wisconsin thanked all of his defensive teammates for their contributions in the post.
