Pittsburgh (93.7 The Fan) - If ever a decision fell into the "no brainer" category it was the Steelers exercising the fifth-year option from linebacker T.J. Watt's rookie contract.

Watt was named first-team Associated Press All Pro in 2019, his third season with the Steelers. He was also voted the Steelers Most Valuable Player by his teammates.  He led the team with 14.5 sacks and eight forced fumbles.  He has registered 34.5 sacks since joining the Steelers in 2017 as a first-round draft choice out of Wisconsin.
