Houston Texans’ star J.J. Watt is having a huge impact on flood relief.

Houston Texans’ defensive star J.J. Watt is making a huge difference when it comes to the flood relief efforts in the Houston area.

On Sunday night Watt decided to kick off a fundraising campaign on YouCaring.com and has now raised over $1.5 million.

Watt was a guest on ABC’s Good Morning America on Tuesday.

Watt told GMA that if they are in fact going to play their preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys this Thursday night that there should be some way for them to raise money for flood relief.

The game was supposed to be played at the Texans home stadium in Houston, but of course had to be moved to AT&T Stadium in Arlington due to the flooding.

Watt made it clear that he believes it’s a big “if” as to whether they will play against the Cowboys and that he football should not be the priority. Many people, including myself, agree with him.

Watt is hoping that if they do play the game that it will become a “multi-million dollar fundraiser.” He also said that he hopes the NFL will “spearhead” that type of campaign.

Watt just posted another tweet announcing that the new goal is $2 million.

I don’t have any doubts that Watt’s new goal of $2 million will be met within the next day or so.
