Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson knows how much defensive J.J. Watt means to the franchise.

The club and Watt agreed to part ways on Friday, and Watt will become a free agent able to sign with any team in the NFL.

Watson took to Twitter and expressed his appreciation for the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

“Salute to one of the Greatest of All Time @JJWatt,” Watson tweeted on Friday. “I appreciate you for all the work you put in and more importantly the person you are. Any team in the league will be better the day you [put] on their jersey! 1OVE my brother! MORE Glory,” and then added praying hands as a punctuation.

Watson and Watt achieved two AFC South titles and a playoff win over the Buffalo Bills in the 2019 AFC wild-card.

With the face of the franchise from the 2010s now looking for a new team, Houston sports fans are hopeful the face of the franchise for the 2020s stays with the Texans.
