"I want my brother to do good, but then I'm like, wait a second here". Watt found out about his brother T.J. No, someone else was mighty impressed by what the Wisconsin Badgers product was doing on the field Friday night - that person being rapper Kendrick Lamar.
There wasn't a whole lot to take away Friday night from the preseason game between the New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers, but one of the main talking points to come out of the contest definitely surrounded rookie T.J. Watt out of Wisconsin.
Watt added with a laugh: "Two sacks in four plays made me question myself, because I played four plays the other day".

Since that gold medal in 2007, the US men had only won one other medal in the event, a silver in 2013. The German beat Jakub Vadlejch of the Czech Republic by 16 centimeters.
"I texted him so he could see after the game what Kendrick said and I just thought that was like the craziest thing in the world, to see one of the best rappers in the world - possibly the best rapper in the world - text me about my little brother", Watt said. Unfortunately, his older brother and arguably the best defensive player in football, Texans star J.J. Watt, wasn't able to watch T.J.do his best J.J. impersonation because he was stuck in training camp meetings. Well when he got out of the meeting, Watt had known what his little brother was doing because, well, Lamar was really the one to tell him. "But it was just so cool".
"Last night when I did start watching the game, I didn't know how to feel because the Steelers are an AFC team", Watt said. It was such an awesome moment to see [T.J.] go out there and do what he does. I don't like how this all works out. So I literally didn't know what to do. I wanted to tweet 'Congratulations on a great first game, ' but, at the same time, I'm like, 'No, you're on another team. Screw you. I don't want you to do good.
