How bad did then Jets head coach Rex Ryan want J.J. Watt in the 2011 NFL Draft? So bad that he approached the future Texans superstar DE about giving him a fake disease so he would drop in the draft. Watt told ESPN's Mike Rodak...

I sat down [at the meeting] and [Ryan] kind of real casually—the whole thing was real casual—and he just said 'Hey, man. You're gonna be gone by the time we get to pick, so here's what we're gonna do: We're gonna put out a fake medical report that you have some sort of disease. I don't know what it is, whatever. We'll make it up. And you're gonna drop, but we'll pay you like you're up there [in the first round].
Was he kidding? Hmm...
