J.J. Watt hosts 20 Texans teammates at his Wisconsin cabin (pic)


J.J. Watt flew in 20 of his Houston Texans teammates this week to work out and hang out at his cabin in Pewaukee, Wisc. Not only will Watt and the guys spend time hitting the gym, riding ATVs and the like but it just so happens the dominant defensive end is celebrating his 27th birthday on Tuesday. Presumably there will be a cake of some sort. And hopefully not one made out of whey protein or whatever.

Watt’s teammates were flown in on a private jet — all on his dime — and the attendees included Jadeveon Clowney, Kevin Johnson, Cecil Shorts III, Brian Cushing, Ben Jones and Shane Lechler, per ESPN’s Tania Ganguli.

Watt reportedly converted a barn on the property into a gym, where he and his teammates apparently will work off cake and ice cream.

Watt is well-known for this kind of generosity. Just last month he flew a bunch of his high school pals to Ireland for this year’s annual trip with his old pals. Although it’s unlikely he and his high school chums did much working out after paying a visit to the Guinness brewery.
