JJ Watt Rips NFL Networks Top 100 List…For Including Him On It
JJ Watt is undoubtedly one of the top defensive players in the league.
The NFL Network is in the process of releasing their NFL Top 100 Players list. Watt came in at number 35 on said list.

Watt didn’t seem too keen on the idea of being put on the list at all.
I played 3 games… this list is a joke. https://t.co/KnKDX1p816

Last year, JJ Watt was number three on the list. It would usually upset a player if they dropped 32 spots, but for a completely different reason. It seems that Watt doesn’t think he should be on the list at all.
In the three games that he did play, ole JJ recorded 1.5 sacks, and one fumble recovery before re-aggravating a back injury.
Also of note, as it says in the tweet, it was his peers that voted him to number 35. Perhaps he should talk to them instead?
