In his final game, Watt recorded three solo tackles, three tackles for a loss, two sacks, and deflected one pass. Although the Cardinals lost the game by a wide margin, the 33-year-old ended his career on top of the competition.
Unless J.J. decides to come back out of retirement, there will be an empty spot waiting for him in five years.
With five Pro Bowls, five All-Pros, three defensive POY awards, and the 2017 Walter Payton Man of the Year award, there is no question that Watt will enter as a first ballot.
A truly tremendous career that the Cardinals were blessed to not only witness, but also be a part of.
