With the 30th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected Wisconsin linebacker T.J. Watt. If you live under a rock, you might not know that T.J. is the younger brother of Houston Texans fearsome defensive end J.J. Watt. And though J.J. is sure to be happy for his brother for making it into the NFL, he still wants to dominate him.

According to Steelers.com, Pittsburgh defensive coordinator Keith Butler said J.J. wants to play a few offensive snaps just to go up against his brother. “[J.J.] is hoping he can play fullback once or twice when we play them this year so he can try to run over his brother,” Butler said.

The three-time Defensive Player of the Year has some experience on the offensive side of the ball. In the 2014 season, the 6-foot-6, 290-pound beast caught three touchdowns as a tight end.

He also has one rushing attempt under his belt, but that didn’t go too well.
J.J. is bigger than his 6-foot-4, 252-pound brother, but T.J. told STACK, in the video above that he is more athletic than his older brother. So if the two men do collide on the field, we’ll see who is the better Watt. The Texans are scheduled to meet the Steelers on Christmas Day, and it should be a good matchup, with playoff implications for both teams.
