J.J. Watt announced on Friday morning that he and the Texans have decided to mutually part ways, which means Watt is a free agent and can sign with any team in the league. This news got many Steelers fans thinking that Watt could possibly join his brothers T.J. and Derek in Pittsburgh.


T.J. posted a GIF on Twitter yesterday suggesting that he wants his brother to join him in Pittsburgh. Draftkings Sportsbook even has the Steelers as the odds-on favorite to sign Watt at +400.


Primanti Bros., the famous Pittsburgh staple, even said on Twitter that if T.J. and Derek can get J.J. to Pittsburgh, they'll rename themselves Watt Bros.

While Primanti's won't change the name of their company ever, as it's a well-known brand in Pittsburgh and around the country, if J.J. signs with the Steelers, it wouldn't be surprising at all if Primanti's creates a sandwich named after the Watt brothers. Maybe a bratwurst sandwich to pay homage to their Wisconsin roots.
