HOUSTON — The Houston Texans are 1-6, have already fired their head coach and general manager, and do not have a first- or second-round draft pick in 2021, but defensive end J.J. Watt said he is not interested in a rebuild.
Watt, who was a first-round pick by the Texans in 2011, was asked Wednesday whether he thinks he will finish his career in Houston.
“I don’t think it’s any secret that I don’t have 10 years left in this league,” Watt said. “I personally believe that I do have a few more great ones left in me. But you also can’t … I’m not looking to rebuild. I’m looking to go after a championship, and that’s what I want to do. So, whatever is in the best interest of the Houston Texans, that’s in the best interest of myself.”
The Texans, who have beaten only the 1-6 Jacksonville Jaguars this season, fired head coach and general manager Bill O’Brien after they lost their first four games. The team has quarterback Deshaun Watson and left tackle Laremy Tunsil under long-term contracts, but it otherwise does not have a lot of young talent locked
