RUSH: J.J. Watt, number 99, and perhaps the greatest defensive player — on the line, anyway — in the NFL started a fundraising effort.
He plays for the Houston Texans, and his fundraising effort has surpassed one and a half million dollars. It started the thing on Sunday, I believe, and he found a website where you can do this and he shut the website down within minutes of it going live because the website had not had this kind of traffic before. Just gobs and gobs of money are pouring in charitably to various fundraising efforts in Houston — and they are going to need it.
Congratulations to J.J. Watt.
