Arizona Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt has one of the biggest personalities in the NFL. Whether he's hosting Saturday Night Live or cracking jokes on his Twitter page, it's never a dull moment when it comes to the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

Watt recently had a hilarious social media interaction with the Random College Athletes Twitter page — an account that tweets out pictures of random former athletes. Well, the account posted a picture of West Liberty University defensive lineman Matt Betz on Friday and Watt couldn't help but notice that this "random athlete" looked pretty familiar.

There's no denying it: Betz does share a striking resemblance to the Cardinals DE and Watt's response to his lookalike makes it that much funnier. The viral joke gained enough traction that it resulted in Betz creating a Twitter account just to get in on the action.

Even though it's all fun and games during the offseason, the Cardinals are going to want Watt to be at the top of his game for the 2021 NFL season. After all, Arizona signed him to a two-year, $28 million back in March because they feel like he can still be a game-changer at this stage of his career. A five-time All-Pro DE, Watt recorded 52 total tackles, 5.0 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and an interception returned for a touchdown in 16 games with the Houston Texans last season.

Even with their offseason improvements, the Cardinals have just +176 odds to make the playoffs next season, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. In the event that the team does make a playoffs appearance, their odds to win Super Bowl 56 sit at +4400 (T-19th).
