Watch: J.J. Watt’s Standing Jump is an Athletic Freak-of-Nature Move

Watch Houston Texans’ defensive end J.J. Watt successfully makes this standing jump that sends him 59.5 inches high onto a stack of boxes. Watt is truly amazing in this video.

Why J.J. Watt should be the 2014 NFL MVP

What I hate about the NFL MVP award is that there’s no way to judge players against players who don’t share a position.
