Who should the Houston Texans induct next into the Ring of Honor?
J.J. Watt should be in the Houston Texans RoH as soon as he retires
J.J. Watt is the hands-down most obvious choice if the Houston Texans wait until he’s retired to induct the next player. Drafted in the first round of the 2011 draft out of the University of Wisconsin, Watt’s career numbers speak for themselves– over 500 career tackles, 101 sacks, 61 pass breakups, and 3 touchdowns. The stats could go on and on
Along with Watt’s accomplishments of:
3× NFL Defensive Player of the Year (2012, 2014-15)
Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year (2017)
5× First-team All-Pro (2012–2015, 2018)
5× Pro Bowl (2012–2015, 2018)
2× NFL sacks leader (2012, 2015)
Unanimous NFL 2010s All-Decade Team
Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year (2017)
There is no doubt that Watt will be in the Ring Of Honor. In the ways Watt was so good on the field, he was just as (if not better) off the field. From all the time he spent in the community to playing catch with little Texans fans before games home and on the road.
And to the enormous amount of money and aid that Watt raised following Hurricane Harvey. There’s no doubt Watt will be in the Ring of Honor whenever he hangs them up. The question becomes is he the next member?
One can make a case for all of these players to make it into the Texans Ring Of Honor. They are all fantastic in their own right and deserving of recognition some more than others. Out of all these candidates, the only one shoo-in is Watt.
As long as these players make it in some time down the road, then the Houston Texans Ring of Honor committee will have gotten it right.
