Could JJ Watt set a new example?

As we all know, JJ Watt is in the last year of his contract. He's the best defensive player in the league. He's also a down-to-earth, humble guy that just seems to have a great personality.

If a player goes for the largest contract in NFL history he really only helps himself (not that anyone would blame him), and he hurts the team by negatively affecting (or is it effecting, I can never get it right) their salary cap.

Thinking about Watt, his personality, and what he has earned in regards to his next contract, does anyone else have this feeling that it will NOT be a huge contract? Think about veterans that want to play one more year on a Super Bowl contender and take the league minimum. It's not about money to them, it's about winning. While I don't think JJ will go to that extreme, I could see him taking $10 million or more LESS than what would be expected so that the Texans can build a better team around him.

I think he's driven more by on the field success than by $$. He'll get paid well, but I don't think it'll be a Mario Williams size contract.

Eh, at least it's something different to talk about other than the draft and coaches :)
