J.J. Watt's mom, Connie Watt, knows her son's worth.

The Houston Texans defensive end is 6' 5", chiseled and financially sound, so while his mom might be biased that doesn't mean she's not right.

The 26-year-old football pro has plenty of years left to play at an elite professional level, but Connie says that J.J. already has his next career planned when it comes time to hang up his cleats.

"I think J.J. will definitely pursue an acting career when he's done playing football," said Connie. "He enjoys it."
