I don't remember the Cardinals being mentioned at all by the "experts" as a possible landing spot for Watt. It's certainly not the splash signing everyone thought he would be making. He's going to spend another two years of his career spinning his wheels. Good luck J.J. at least you'll be hanging out with DeAndre Hopkins again.
