J.J. Watt bought his mother a car for her birthday

Wednesday October 1st, 2014

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt really loves his mother. First he looked into plastic surgery just so she wouldn't have to see him bleeding all the time, and now he has bought her a car for her birthday.

Judging by the photos Watt has posted to his Twitter account, he presented his mother with the white Range Rover at Camp Randall Stadium, the home of his college team, the Wisconsin Badgers, on Wednesday afternoon.

Watt can afford to buy a car for just about anyone he would like these days after signing a six-year, $100 million extension  over the summer to keep him at the front of the Texans defense.

Maybe "buy your mom a car for her birthday" is one of the things that came up when he Googled how to spend all that new money.
