Major admission from Pittsburgh's T.J. Watt

The veteran defensive stalwart is entering his 8th NFL season.

He's been a mainstay with the Pittsburgh Steelers since they selected him in the first round with the 30th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, and while he is an established NFL veteran at only 29 years of age, he's stating that he's feeling much older. 

“I feel old,” Watt said. “This is the first time in my career that I’ve started to feel old.”

“It’s weird. It’s very strange,” said Watt. “But it’s also kind of a check to understand that I don’t get to play this game forever. I understand that I’m not going to be able to play this game for 10 more years, so I need to be able to make each and every day count, each and every year count. I need to and do everything possible to bring another championship back to this city.”

Watt has racked up a total of 401 tackles and 96.5 sacks during his career, turning into one of the best defensive players in the NFL and with almost certainly a future in the Hall of Fame. 

Steelers fans, what are you expecting out of Watt as he enters his 8th NFL season?
