Houston Texans star makes shocking revelation

Houston Texans Defensive-end J.J Watt is having an unprecedented season and is showing everyone that he is able to rival any player in the league.

He has three offensive touchdowns so far this season and another two whilst on the defensive side of the field.

Many have drawn similarities between him and New England Patriots star Tight-end Rob Gronkowski.

Whilst Gronkowski is one of the best Tight-ends in the NFL, many feel that Watt would give him a run for his money if he switched to offense.

We may never get to see this contest play out however since Watt would be too big of a loss to the Texans defence.


Watt may have a way to go before he can officially be considered an offensive player however since he recently made a surprising revelation.

"I have no idea what they're saying in the huddle on offense," - J.J Watt on his offensive skills

The fact that Watt isn't even aware of the play calls or even his position before the play is snapped is quite a shock given his performance on offense this year.

However, if you review this footage of the pre-snap from Watt's last touchdown against the Tennessee Titans, it certainly shows a certain element of confusion.

Watt has a perfect record for the Texans on offence scoring three touchdowns on the three receptions he has taken.

Even if it is only for four yards combined, Watt is undoubtedly an effective weapon in the red-zone and one the Texans should continue to use.

Enough to topple Gronk?

Many are viewing this as Gronkowski's return season as it is the first when he has looked like the player he was before suffering the string of long term injuries in recent years.

Gronk has certainly been impressive this year taking nine touchdown passes from 65 receptions.

He took the catch of the season in many people's opinions against the Denver Broncos in week 10 - until Odell Beckham Jr happened anyway.

Watt and Gronk going head to head as tight-ends for a whole season would truly test the Defensive-ends true offensive skill and if this years number one overall pick Jadeveon Clowney ever returns to the Texans starters, he may be able to take over Watt's role and allow him to play more offense.

In the meantime, it looks like the top Tight-end in the league title will remain amongst men like Gronkowski, New Orleans Saints Jimmy Graham and Julius Thomas of the Denver Broncos.
