Fullback Derek is set to join pass rusher T.J., who tweeted the announcement on Tuesday night: “LETS GOOOOO!!!!!!!! Welcome to #SteelersNation !!!!!!!! @DerekWatt34 https://twitter.com/rapsheet/status/1240028927722172421 …”
ESPN reported Derek is signing a three-year, $9.75-million deal.
The league’s new year opens at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
Nothing official has been declared by the Steelers.
Their older brother tweeted a congrats as well.
The brothers do have their own competitions during offseason workouts. Derek says he has the edge in speed and agility drills but J.J. and T.J. have a better vertical leap.
“It’s always competitive,” Derek said. “We always push each other.”
Derek is the only Watt brother who plays offense.
