SI honored J.J. Watt as its 2017 Sportsperson of the Year in recognition of his tremendous efforts fundraising for hurricane relief. Watt thinks other NFL players should feel free to follow in his footsteps. Sportswriter Dave Zirin tweeted and (subsequently deleted) a partially inaccurate quote from The Ringer contributor and former NFL GM Michael Lombardi about outspoken quarterback prospect Josh Rosen and his interest in matters beyond the football field. “He has to decide whether he wants to be a humanitarian or a football player,” Zirin quoted Lombardi as said. “Why?” Zirin asked. That didn’t sit well with Watt, who likened the sentiment to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham telling LeBron James and Kevin Durant to “shut up and dribble.”
