Why the New England Patriots should look to acquire J.J. Watt in 2021
Mar. 1, 2024 – 01:30 – The New England Patriots go into this offseason looking to be aggressive in their pursuit of returning to the playoffs. There are many holes to fill, with a majority of them coming in on the offense. However, there are defensive holes such as defensive tackles, defensive edges, and linebackers.
The Athletic’s Jeff Howe created a list of 25 players this offseason that would best fit the New England Patriots. Howe had Hunter Henry at number one due to the Patriots’ need to acquire offensive weapons. However, he has J.J. Watt coming in at number two on the list.
People may have never thought that Watt could be an option for the Patriots, but that’s where they could find themselves with a great amount of cap space. There are many pros and not a ton of cons in the decision to possibly bring Watt to Foxborough.
