[PHOTO] JJ Watt Tweets Photo with Actual S.W.A.T. Team

JJ Watt is batting down balls on the football field at a record pace for a defensive lineman, earning him the obvious nickname JJ "Swatt." Yesterday, he tweeted out a photo of himself in full riot gear with members of the Houston Police Department S.W.A.T. team near downtown with the tweet, "Houston, we've got your back." The HPD blog also posted a black and white version and a thanks to Watt:

We would like to thank the big guy in the middle, Houston Texan JJ "SWATT" for supporting HPD.

J.J. Watt has family back home who has been in the First Responder business for almost three decades. J.J. wanted to support HPD by participating is a recent photo shoot. Seen here are some members of the HPD SWAT Team posing with J.J.

With a defense like the Houston Texans and our HPD SWAT team I would say we have Houston covered.
