It’s been over a week since the Houston Texans officially released J.J. Watt and anticipation continues to mount among NFL fans as to where he’ll end up.

The Buffalo Bills are reportedly one of the teams Watt is considering and every tweet he sends gets everybody talking about what it could possibly mean.

On Sunday night a fan tweeted at Watt and asked him if he was going to pick a team.

Watt replied: “I scroll through door dash for like an hour before I pick a restaurant man… You’re gonna have to give me a second to choose a new team and city,” Watt tweeted.

Watt is a street free agent and is free to sign with a team as quickly as he wants. He doesn’t have to wait until the middle of March for the official start of free agency because he was released by his former team.

According to several reports, Watt is considering teams based on their ability to compete for a Super Bowl, how talented their quarterback is, and how much money they have. The Bills don’t have a lot of money but they would be able to check the other two boxes for Watt.

It may still be a few weeks before Watt ultimately makes his decision or the team he decided upon is able to offer the deal. Without knowing the exact cap number – it could land anywhere between $180 – $190 million – it’s difficult for general managers to get their roster building underway.
