J.J. Watt's Mom Says He'd Be a 'Great Catch' For Any Woman

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

"I think J.J. would make such a great catch for anybody, because he is a true down-home person who has such a good heart," Connie told ET. "What you see is what you get with J.J."

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.

J.J. signed a $100 million contract with his NFL team last year, but he still gives back through his J.J. Watt Foundation, which provides after-school athletic programs for middle school kids.

"I was incredibly impressed with how he looked on that cover!" Connie gushed.

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."

ET caught up with J.J. in July, when he gushed about meeting his longtime celebrity crush, the now-married Jennifer Aniston.

"It's been one of those things where she's the celebrity crush and we got to make it happen, and it was pretty incredible," he told ET's Kevin Frazier. "I don't remember a whole lot about her because I was just so excited to get the photograph and meet her and say hello."
