JJ Watt's release from the Houston Texans felt like the end of an era. Watt had become the greatest player in franchise history since he was drafted 11th overall in 2011.

During his spell in Houston he'd become an icon, raising millions of dollars in charity and becoming the face of the city. Not only that but he was a 3-time Defensive Player Of The Year, 5-time First-Team All-Pro and a 2-time sacks leader. 

It's not often that players will that resume become available and every team in the NFL has been linked with the 31-year old.

DraftKings are offering odds on the defensive end's next team and the Cleveland Browns currently lead the betting at +150. Reports in recent days have said that the Ohio team are keen to sign him, and that the Browns have everything that Watt is looking for in a team. He's believed to want to be well paid, something they can do given they have $21.7m in cap space. He also wants the opportunity to play for a contender and get an opportunity to win a ring. The Browns looked good in playoffs, and are a team who are considering to be on the rise, and packed with great talent. Not only that but he'd get the chance to line up alongside Myles Garrett, instantly creating one of the league's most dangerous defensive lines.

Many, including brother TJ, have implied that he should move to Pittsburgh. The Steelers arguably had the league's best defense last year, and the addition of a plalyer with 101 career sacks would be a huge boost. Not only that but he'd get to play alongside both of his brothers. At +450 they've priced as second favorites.

The Packers are a tied second at +450 and they're an attractive option for a Wisconsin kid. Their defense was good last year however, and they'd perhaps be better spent investing in weapons for Aaron Rodgers.

Elsewhere the Bills and Titans are popular landing spots, both in need of defensive help in order to give their dynamic offenses a shot at a ring.
