Don’t you hate it when someone owes you money and you know they have it?

Imagine how Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman J.J. Watt felt Thursday.

His brother, Pittsburgh Steelers pass rusher T.J. Watt, has agreed to a contract extension that is worth over $112 million, including $80 million of that being fully guaranteed.

That total will make the younger Watt brother of the two the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL.

So, J.J. is trying to get paid back.

First of all, we are glad to see that J.J. is indicating that T.J. has an accountant, because that is a lot of money to manage for just one person without any help.

Second of all, what a cool development for T.J., who made a combined total of under $10 million in his first four seasons according to Sportrac and will now be getting paid much more like a guy who had sack totals of 7.0, 13.0, 14.5 and a league-leading 15.0 in those seasons, respectively. Good on him.
