“Would like to hear who Mark’s sources are. You certainly can’t be myself, Coach T, Kevin Colbert, or Coach Butler, ”wrote Watt in response to the claims. “Everyone I met during the exit interviews before I packed my own things after a highly competitive season to give everything I have for the city of Pittsburgh.”

For his part, Mark Madden of 105.9 The X in Pittsburgh doubled his claims on social media.

“To reiterate, I absolutely stand by my story. TJ Watt skipped his exit interview regardless of what he says now, ”remarked Madden in several tweets. “I only checked it with my source. Says history is 100% true … People constantly deny true stories, especially those that don’t flatter them. 100% true. “

This could easily be resolved by the Pittsburgh Steelers issuing a statement either confirming or rejecting the report. It remains to be seen whether this will happen in the future.

What we do know is that JJ Watt of the Houston Texans had his own response on social media.

We’re not 100% sure what’s going on here. However, it wouldn’t be a week in the NFL without a drama.
