JJ Watt admits to'monitoring' two teams for a possible NFL comeback.

Future Hall of Famer J.J. Watt told Fox News Digital last year that he wanted to retire from football while he still had something left in the tank; he recorded 12.5 sacks in his final season.

However, calling it a career while still a quality starter may lead to a desire to return, which Watt experienced this season.

Watt stated on Wednesday's "The Pat McAfee Show" that he was "monitoring" the conditions for both his former Houston Texans and the Pittsburgh Steelers, where his brother, T.J., plays and their other sibling, Derek, will play in 2022.

"But it never escalated to any sort of actual potential," Watt went on to say.Watt stated that it would have been a "dream" to suit up with his brothers, "but they were all set."

If it was something where I could bring something that would help propel somebody to a potential Super Bowl, where you fill a need and take them to a new level, absolutely," Watt said of his decision to return from retirement. "But just to do it would have been ridiculous."

Watt told Fox News in September, just before the season started, that he didn't miss football at all. But, midway through the season, something happened to him.

"When I went to Pittsburgh and visited T.J. and watched him get ready for the game, that was hands down the moment where I was like, 'This is the first time I definitely miss playing,'" Watt told ESPN.

He confessed that if the Steelers had been on a hot streak in the middle of the season, negotiations with the team would have gone differently. Instead, they barely advanced to the playoffs and were eliminated in the first round.
