Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman J.J. Watt announced in a tweet Tuesday morning that he will retire after this season.
Watt has two games left to play, but they are both road trips, to the Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers.
Watt is one of the most dominant defensive players of his generation and a likely first-ballot Hall of Famer. He is one of three players to be named the Defensive Player of the Year three times, joining Aaron Donald and Lawrence Taylor.
Watt finishes his career the Cardinals, having signed with them before the 2021 season after spending 10 seasons with the Houston Texans. He has 111.5 sacks in his career.
