Report: Texans DE J.J. Watt restructures contract
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Defensive end J.J. Watt is doing his part to free up some cap space for the Texans

According to a report from ESPN, Watt has restructured his deal, which will create $8 million in salary cap room for the upcoming season. His $10 million roster bonus has been converted to a signing bonus. 

His cap figure will now drop from over $21.969 million to roughly $13.969 million. 

Watt was a terror for opposing quarterbacks a year ago as he recorded 20.5 sacks.

Texans DE J.J. Watt racks up two sacks vs. Colts
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt six tackles, two sacks and one pass defensed in his team's 17-10 loss to the Colts in Week 15.

The Texans have played each of the other teams in their division over the last three weeks, and Watt has posted multiple sacks in each of those games and seven sacks in all during that stretch. His sack total is up to 16.5 on the season with matchups against the Ravens (Week 16) and Jaguars (Week 17) remaining on the schedule. He had three sacks against the Jaguars in Week 14, so a 20-sack season is certainly in play.
