J.J. Watt won’t unretire for the Bills, but he would like to have a beer with you

Next time you see JJ Watt, crack open a cold one, Western New York. It’s what he would want.

After 12 years in the NFL, Watt retired in December. He was playing with the Arizona Cardinals last season.

As of now, he won’t be unretiring to play for the Buffalo Bills. But he said the next best thing via his social media account on Twitter.

It appears a Bills fan sent him a message that told him to come out of retirement to play in Buffalo. After all, when Watt was released by the Houston Texans, there were rumors of him coming to the Bills before he signed with the Cardinals.

That did not happen but the team and their fans still have his respect.

Watt politely declined the idea, but said he’d have a beer with Bills Mafia, calling them one of best fan bases:

A very cool comment from Watt.

One of the best pass rushers to ever to it, Watt has played against the Bills only five times in his career. He still holds the Buffalo faithful in this regard.

And heck, maybe this is the first step in him putting on the red, white, and blue (in Buffalo, not Houston).

While he has played some injury-filled seasons over the past few years, he is only 34. The same age as Von Miller.

Something left in the tank? For now, no… for now.
