JJ Watt's talented brother says he'll meet with the Redskins before NFL Draft

JJ Watt's talented brother says he'll meet with the Redskins before NFL Draft

Unfortunately for 31 of the NFL's 32 teams, there's only one JJ Watt to go around, and the freak pass rusher is going to be in Houston for a long time. However, those 31 less fortunate franchises do have a chance at grabbing the next best thing this April.

TJ Watt, JJ's younger brother by five and a half years, looks like he'll be taken somewhere in the second round of this year's draft. And according to the Wisconsin product himself, the Redskins are one of the team's he'll meet with before the league's biggest offseason event.

Many believe that Washington should use the No. 17 pick on a propsect who can pressure opposing quarterbacks. Watt, though, represents someone who could do that at a later draft slot if the Redskins opt to supplement another position in the first-round.

The junior finally put up numbers in 2016 after a slow start to his Badgers career. As a starter at outside linebacker, Watt registered 11.5 sacks and was named first-team All-Big Ten — not shabby for someone who entered college as a tight end.

Watt also told NFL.com that he's already worked out for the Patriots, Cowboys and Lions, and has a visit scheduled with the Panthers as well. Wherever he ends up as a pro, he'll bring a lot of versatility and become the third Watt brother to make it to that level, joining JJ and Derek, who's a fullback in San Diego.

The due date of Kirk Cousins' baby is getting closer to a critical part of the NFL schedule

The due date of Kirk Cousins' baby is getting closer to a critical part of the NFL schedule

Once upon a time, one Redskins quarterback infamously announced that he was all in for Week 1. The Redskins' current QB, however, is most certainly not.

While talking to the media on Wednesday at his team's OTAs, Kirk Cousins said that the baby he and his wife, Julie, are expecting is projected to come earlier than the couple originally thought. That's, of course, tremendous news for the two, but it could also present a large issue due to what Cousins does for a living.

"Yeah, the baby's due in mid-September," he said. "Was supposed to be Week 2, but we got the 20-week ultrasound and they moved it up a week. So, we're looking for around Week 1, between Week 1 and Week 2. We're praying that it'll come on a day where it doesn't conflict with any important football matters."

Again — congratulations to Kirk and Julie. Babies are fun and cute and they're worth a ton of Instagram likes and, overall, they're something worth celebrating. But when Cousins says he's hoping that the baby arrives on a non-gameday, he's not alone; the Redskins will have a much better shot of beating the Eagles on September 10 if he's under center and not Colt McCoy, after all.

Fortunately, any day that isn't a Sunday during that month should mean that the 28-year-old can enjoy the birth of his first child and Washington can enjoy having their franchise passer take the field in crucial early matchups. And whenever the next member of the Cousins clan finally does show up, Julie is prepared to run the show so her husband can run the offense.

"We're excited, and Julie's been great," Kirk said. "She's just been outstanding the whole time and she's already told me that she's going to carry the weight the first few months so I can focus on football, and she's gonna be a big help. We're looking forward to that. Lots to look forward to right now, I'm in a good place."
