NFL community reacts to J.J. Watt announcing his retirement after 12 seasons

Arizona Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt announced Tuesday on Twitter that past Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers was his last NFL home game after 12 seasons in the NFL.

Below is the reaction from the NFL community, family, friends and more following the news of Watt’s retirement:

Koa’s first ever NFL game.
My last ever NFL home game.

My heart is filled with nothing but love and gratitude. It’s been an absolute honor and a pleasure.


The greatest. I am so proud to be your wife ❤️💙 @JJWatt

Nothing but love and respect for one of the best to ever do it in H-Town 🤘

We can't wait to celebrate your legacy soon.

Not only was @JJWatt one of the most dominant defenders of his generation, he was also one of the greatest men off the field.

After Hurricane Harvey devastated Texas in 2017, he raised over $37 million towards relief efforts in just 19 days. ❤️ #WPMOY

Game recognize game 🤝

Congratulations on a great career, @JJWatt.

J.J. Watt played better in his last year than I did in my prime. Congrats on an amazing career.

Great respect for JJ Watt’s body of work both on the field and off. A total class act. Well done brother!

From one Badger to another, what a terrific and wonderful playing career. We look forward to welcoming you to the Legends community.#OnWisconsin

I don’t know @JJWatt but the dude has had an incredible career and he’s going to be ultra successful at whatever he does! Thanks for the great example on AND off the field.
