When NFL players retire from the league, they tend to do one of two things.
They either go all-in, starting a career in broadcasting or other sports media, or they entirely remove themselves from the game.
J.J. Watt has gone all-in during his retirement, appearing on several podcasts and television opportunities.
His brother, T.J., is still in the league, and he continues to support his family members.
According to a recent tweet from Watt, he will be in attendance for the Pittsburgh Steelers‘ Thursday Night Football game against the Tennesee Titans.
Need some Primanti Bros. & pierogies immediately upon entry.
Terrible Towels will be waved.
Renegade will be blasted.
I’m here for the full experience.
Let’s do this Steel City.

Watt spent the majority of his time in the NFL with the Houston Texans but ended his career with the Arizona Cardinals.
Despite never playing for the Steelers, Watt is beloved by the franchise given his brother’s success with the team.
Watt was one of the most likable players across the league when he was an active player, a standing that has followed him into retirement.
He has a seemingly large following, and when he mentioned that he’ll be at the Steelers game, it was received very well.
Now, the Steelers have to try and pull out a win knowing that Watt will be in attendance.
They currently hold a 4-3 record and have won two of their last three games.
With Will Levis only slated to make his second career start in this game, the Steelers should have a great opportunity to come away with a win.
The main concern for Steelers fans is whether Kenny Pickett will be healthy enough to make it through an entire game.
