Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon from his home in Wisconsin and they were also joined by his brothers Derek and T.J who both play for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
With both Derek and T.J. joining together with the Steelers, fans have flocked to social media to get Watt to make that move as well.
“Steelers fans are crazy,” Watt said. “Steelers fans have been in my Twitter mentions, they’ve been on my Instagram page. They’ve been creating these mockups like, ‘Come join us, come join us.’ And, I’m like, ‘I don’t know if you understand how this works. It’s not like you just pick up and choose where you want to go.’”
JJ Watt was being interviewed on Jimmy Fallon last night, and he said Steelers fans keep telling him on Twitter to join the Steelers, and he said that’s not how it works. Then Fallon said he got thrown out of Primanti’s for trying to order a sandwich without coleslaw.

That’s when TJ Watt revealed that JJ was spotted wearing a Steelers cap around his house, but wouldn’t leak the photo to the media.
TJ Watt on JJ Watt: “I looked at JJ and said it sucks to be you right now. He is jealous because we are playing together again. I caught him wearing a Steelers Hat around the house. I have a shot of it on my phone, but I won’t leak it to the media.” #Steelers

J.J. is entering his 10th NFL season, all with the Texans. He has 96.0 career sacks.
TJ just finished his 3rd year and led the league in forced fumbles with eight. He also added 14.5 sacks.
Derek is the only one who doesn’t punish a QB since he’s a fullback. He scored his first career touchdown in December. He is expected to be Pittsburgh’s starting fullback in 2020.
