J.J. Watt took a page out of the Deshaun Watson cryptic Twitter book, it seems.
NFL fans are waiting on the edge of their seats waiting for the ex-Houston Texan to announce where he’s headed next, and they’re bugging him about it, trying to read into anything and everything to figure out if there are clues about his future home, including looking back at an episode of New Girl (seriously).
On Tuesday, Watt dropped a cryptic tweet about mitochondria, which help power cells. And in the middle of free agency, it felt to everyone like Watt was just playing with everyone … or could it be a clue?!
Mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell.

NFL fans started digging and came up with some theories as to what this thing meant. Could he be referring to the Browns?
Powerhouse = Huey Lewis and the News reference = heart of rock ‘n roll = Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame = @JJWatt IS COMING TO CLEVELAND!

Mitochondria generates energy in a cell, the Cleveland #Browns play in First ENERGY stadium… coincidence… I think not!

Could it have something to do with DNA, which he shares with his brothers T.J. and Derek? Who also play for the Steelers? I seem to recall there being something called Mitochondrial DNA.
Anyway, this is where we’re at in Watt free agency. Fun, isn’t it?
