J.J. Watt to play offense 'more and more'
Wednesday September 17th, 2014

Houston Texans coach Bill O'Brien suggested Wednesday that star defensive end J.J. Watt will 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.
