[UPDATE]- Clayton clarifies that the three teams mentioned are the leaders - not the final three
People are misinterpreting what I said on radio today. I said Tennessee, Green Bay and Buffalo were the leading teams for J.J. Watt but not the final three. Watt hasn't narrowed his list. The Cleveland Browns are still in. So are the Raiders. He has a dozen teams after him.— John Clayton (@JohnClaytonNFL) February 24, 2021
John Clayton has the Titans as one of the three finalists for J.J. Watt. The other two teams are the Bills and Packers. Clayton also said that Watt will not be going to the Steelers. There was so much talk about the Steelers because of Watt’s brothers, but it was always going to be tough for them to clear the cap room to make that happen.
The rumors are that Watt wants to win a Super Bowl. It would be tough for the Titans to argue they are closer to the Super Bowl than the Packers. Hopefully the connection with Mike Vrabel and the fact that he would get to face the Texans twice will tip the scales in the Titans' favor.
We know the Titans need a lot to fix the pass rush from last year. Watt would be a good first step toward making that happen. They would still need to get a guy (or two) that can pressure off the EDGE.
