Recognized as one of the best defensive players of his time in the NFL, American JJ Watt explained why he preferred cleats to skates when he was young.

The former Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals played his final season at the Goodell Circuit in 2022.

Despite his glorious career in professional football, Watt and his younger brother, TJ, have never hidden their love for hockey. JJ Watt also befriended fellow Wisconsin Badgers alum, Cole Caufield.

Watt, 33, was asked by a netizen about his decision to get involved in football as a youngster.

“My great-uncle trained you and your brother a very long time ago. He told me you both had the talent to turn pro but your mum thought football was safer,” Twitter user Tyler Kiel wrote.

” Safer ? No. Cheaper ? Yes, answered the one who participated in the Pro Bowl game five times. The biggest obstacle in hockey is the cost associated with it.

“Football is the most popular sport on the planet, largely because it only requires a ball. Hockey equipment is expensive. Children grow and often need to change size, ice time is rare, etc.

We can never know if the Watt brothers really could have had a career in the National Hockey League, but they certainly did not regret their decision. JJ has earned nearly $130 million in salary during his career, while the still active TJ has pocketed nearly $70 million.
