According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Watt will sign a two-year, $31 million deal with the team. Of the $31 million, $23 million of it is guaranteed.
Watt, 31, is a five-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro who spent his first 10 seasons in the league with the Texans. His play earned him the honors of 2012, 2014 and 2015 Defensive Player of the Year. He has 101 sacks and 172 tackles for loss in his career.
Watt will join the Cardinals, who run the 3-4 defense, which is what he has been familiar with throughout his career. He will look to make the Cardinals even better defensively after they ranked 12th last season, allowing 22.9 points per game.
