JJ Watt has spent each of his 10 NFL seasons playing for the Houston Texans organization, but now heads into the offseason testing free agency for the first time. There will be a number of contending NFL teams looking to add the veteran defensive end to create depth and stability at the position.

When it comes to the odds of where Watt will take his next snap, the Cleveland Browns have recently skyrocketed up the rankings. Watt recently stated how Cleveland has a lot of what he is looking for in his next team including cap space and overall upside.

The Browns are now a heavy favorite to sign Watt with odds currently sitting at -200, according to player future odds posted on FanDuel Sportsbook Colorado. Cleveland wasn't even in the top five teams with the highest odds when they first opened.

Having Watt line up alongside Myles Garrett on the defensive line would create havoc for whatever team the Browns are facing. The acquisition of Watt could push this defense to another level as Cleveland ranked right in the middle of the pack last season averaging 2.2 sacks per game (No. 16 in the NFL).

Filling out the rest of the top five teams are the Green Bay Packers (+170), Pittsburgh Steelers (+350), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+650) and Baltimore Ravens (+850). These odds are bound to keep changing during the offseason, but seeing Watt suit up in brown and orange next season seems to be the most likely scenario right now.
