Brian Cushing: J.J. Watt could become the best defensive player ever

jj wattJ.J. Watt had an excellent 2012 season. And now one of Watt’s teammates believes he can become the best defensive player ever.

Brian Cushing told ESPN’s John Clayton that Watt hasn’t hit the ceiling of his potential.

“The things that he’s going to be able to accomplish are unbelievable,” Cushing said. “When you talk about the potential that he has of really being the greatest defensive player ever, he could be. I know that’s very premature but he’s that kind of player.

“I think if he just keeps doing what he’s doing and obviously stays healthy, he’s on that track.”
