“J.J. Watt, not arguably, this is the best defensive player in the game today.” – Deion Sanders on Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt

“He has lived up to the hype, he has exceeded all expectations, and he’s almost flawless against this Houston Texans football team.” – Deion Sanders on Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck

He gets the job done.” – Michael Irvin on building a team around Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt
