UPDATE: Watt seemingly denied the report and tweeted that he doesn’t have a Peloton.

J.J. Watt appears to have reportedly narrowed his list of potential landing spots down to three teams.
As pointed out Monday morning by Bleacher Report, the former Houston Texans star updated his Peloton bio to read “SB56…GB..CLE..BUF.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
It seems to be the clearest indication yet that Watt has zeroed in a new team.

For what it’s worth, John Clayton previously reported that the Bills and Packers were in the hunt, and also mentioned the Raiders and Titans.
It now appears like the last two have been bounced out.
.@JohnClaytonNFL says JJ Watt won’t be coming to Pittsburgh. Tennessee, Green Bay, and Buffalo are the 3 teams. Raiders as a dark horse.

Even though I’m not a fan of the Packers, Watt coming to Green Bay seems to almost make too much sense. He grew up in Wisconsin, played for the Badgers and is a hero in the state.
The man knows how to move the needle when it comes to the news, and finishing his career with the Packers would be a storybook ending that would make Hollywood proud.

Watt playing for the Packers would set the league on fire. Do I want to face him twice a year as a fan of the Lions? No, but the storyline would be fascinating. Something tells me it’s going to happen. Don’t bet on it just yet, but keep your eyes peeled!
