MONDAY: Jane Slater, Shaquille O’Neal

The’s Pete King recently spent some time with J.J. Watt and clarified Watt’s comments on when he’ll retire. Watt talked about when he’ll stop playing and some interpreted his statements as a signal he’ll end his career early. King said that’s not the case:

“He just said in essence that he doesn’t know what he’s going to do.  I said look here’s your chance, clarify what exactly you think you’re going to do, because I’ve read a bunch of different things. And he said I have no idea when it’s going to be. He said I’m not saying it not going to be 2, 3 or 4 years. He said I’m not saying its going to be 9 or 10 years. His point originally and his point now is he is going to play as long as he can play without pain and as long as it’s still fun. I think this is a huge year for J.J. Watt. A lot more important than a lot of people think because last year was a disaster physically. He worked himself into being tremendously hurt. So will he be as hurt this year or was that a fluke thing last year where he had a back injury, a broken hand and he practically tore his groin injury from the bone? This is going to be huge. If he has another year like that where every week, it’s a battle just to be able to get to the practice field on Thursday then I mean who knows. I think that would change his mind.”
