Houston Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Wednesday that star defensive end J.J. Watt is expected to get more repetitions at tight end in the future.
Watt recorded his first career touchdown reception in Sunday's win over the Oakland Raiders. The 6-foot-6, 290-pound Watt played tight end in high school and at Central Michigan before transferring to Wisconsin.
Watt, who is considered one of the top defensive players in the league, signed a six-year, $100 million contract extension in September.
The Texans (2-0) face the New York Giants on Sunday.
Bill O'Brien just said you can expect Texans to use J.J. Watt 'more and more' moving forward as red-zone TE. Watch out league!!— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) September 17, 2014
