J.J. Watt Calls NFL Top 100 "a joke"

HOUSTON, Tx. - J.J. Watt's trophy case may hold awards like three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, two-time NFL sacks leader, Pro Bowl stints and even many accolades like a Big 10 title from his time at the University of Wisconsin, but he wants no part of the NFL Network's Top 100 rankings this year.

Watt was named No. 35 overall, but he thinks he shouldn't be so high on the list, which is voted on by NFL players. 

The Houston Texans defensive end wrote, "I played 3 games... this list is a joke," in a quote tweet of the NFL Network's original tweet. Due to a lingering back injury last fall, Watt finished 2016 with 1.6 sacks and a fumble recovery in the three games he played.

This time last year, Watt was actually named the No. 3 overall player in the NFL Network's rankings.
