SALT LAKE CITY – Arizona Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt enjoyed a visit to the state of Utah thanks to a trip to buffet restaurant Chuck-A-Rama.

Watt shared his experience with a funny post on Twitter on March 19.

“I grew up on Old Country Buffet, Golden Corral, etc. trying to gain weight for sports. But haven’t been to a buffet in years. Kealia is from Utah and has been raving about Chuck-A-Rama ever since I met her. Today I am reminded of the greatness that is the buffet restaurant.”

The NFL star has family ties to the state of Utah.

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 Kansas City Chiefs tight end Matt Bushman for creating a foundation. Bushman said his foundation was inspired by the Cardinals star.

Watt recently completed his 11th season in the NFL and first with the Cardinals.

In 2021, Watt recorded 16 total tackles, 10 solo tackles, one sack, one forced fumble, and two pass breakups in seven regular season games with Arizona. He added three total tackles and one solo tackle in the Cardinals’ lone postseason game.
