Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals DE J.J. Watt's two-year deal includes a $12 million signing bonus, a $14.5 million base salary in 2021, $13.5 million base salary in 2022 and a maximum of $31 million. He can earn $3 million in incentives for sacks. If he gets 10 sacks in 2021, it's worth $1 million with a $1 million escalator in 2022. Ten sacks in 2022 nets $1 million as well.
Huddle Up: Watt only had five sacks last year, but he still finished 11th in fantasy points at the position. He should have more potential for sacks with his new team and will be a midrange DL1 in IDP leagues.
