J.J. Watt is larger than life. So is his bank account: The Houston Texans star is currently working on a $100 million contract for the team.
You'd expect Watt to be living in some palace on the outskirts of Houston, or perhaps in rural Wisconsin. But you'd be wrong: In reality, Watt lives in a humble house in a Houston-area neighborhood.
Now, after five years in the home, Watt has listed the property for sale. In the slideshow below, take a peek inside Watt's soon-to-be-former house, and check out what a bargain price the home is on the market for.

Place To Store Your Gear

Eat Your Heart Out

Quiet And Cozy

Sleepless In Houston
