After spending his entire career with the Houston Texans, Watt signed with one of the closest NFL teams to the state of Utah this offseason, the Cardinals.
The NFL star has family ties to the state of Utah, including in sports.
Watt’s wife, Kealia Watt, was born in Draper, Utah and attended Alta High School. She is currently a member of the NWSL’s Chicago Red Stars.
The NFL linebacker previously expressed interest in buying former NWSL club, Utah Royals FC, before the team moved to Kansas City in 2020.
In early 2021, Watt praised former BYU and current Las Vegas Raiders tight end Matt Bushman for creating a foundation. Bushman said his foundation was inspired by the Cardinals star.
