Defensive end J.J. Watt's announcement on social media that he is leaving the Houston Texans after 10 seasons to sign with the Arizona Cardinals made some social media ripples on Monday.
Watt, who ranks second in the NFL in sacks since 2012, will join forces with the Cardinals' Chandler Jones, who ranks first during that same period.
Country music singer Blake Shelton, who also stars on NBC's "The Voice," is a longtime Cardinals fan and was among those who took to social media.
