JJ Watt responds to Zach Mettenberger’s jab

Campus Sports recently caught up with Tennessee Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger for an exclusive interview. During the interview, Mettenberger discussed his time at LSU, the transition to the NFL and even a funny moment with Houston Texans star JJ Watt.

Watt previously criticized Mettenberger for taking a selfie before a game, but the young signal-caller delivered a tongue-in-cheek comeback during his sitdown in Nashville.

Mettenberger joked about the Texans’ letterman jackets, calling them “high schoolish.”

Well, Watt has caught wind of those comments and seemingly took to social media to deliver a response.

A lion doesn't concern himself with the opinions of a sheep. Time to attack the day.

Well, needless to say, the Texans-Titans rivalry just got a little more fun.

It’s highly unlikely that Watt actually took Mettenberger’s comments seriously, but perhaps they will have the opportunity to meet on the field later this season to hash things out.
