Cardinals’ J.J. Watt encounters ‘baby rattlesnake’ in bathroom

Aug 13, 2022, 5:00 PM

Cardinals defensive lineman J.J. Watt found himself in a situation many who call Arizona home never wish to be in.

Or, at least the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year thought so.

Watt let out a cry for help on Twitter, asking fans how to deal with a baby rattlesnake that he found in his bathroom.

An opponent the 6-foot-5, 288-pound lineman would stay clear of, Watt said he called someone to take care of the venomous creature.

Watt’s predicament even caught the attention of fellow Arizona star, Suns point guard Chris Paul, who clearly wouldn’t want to find himself in that situation either.

Fortunately for Watt, the snake would turn out to be harmless, as he let his followers know in a later update.

Whoever Watt called for helped took care of the snake in simple fashion, picking it up with their bare hands.

“If you ever wanna feel like a wimp, that’s a way to do it,” Watt said.

The secret is out. Need a way to scare an All-Pro NFL defensive lineman?

Look no further than a long-nosed snake.
