As the Pittsburgh Steelers continue their search for a worthy successor at quarterback to the retired Ben Roethlisberger, they will probably rely on their defense to be competitive.

That defense starts with outside linebacker TJ Watt, one of the best passers in the NFL.

On Thursday, he posted a video on his official Twitter account, in which he is seen trying to clean his swimming pool, but falls inside it.

Luckily, she said she was fine.

The prospect of an accident became a cause for concern among members of Steelers Nation, especially after Watt suffered a pectoral injury while having arthroscopic knee surgery the previous season and played just 10 games.

He had the least productive season of his career, with only 5.5 sacks, 12 quarterback hits and eight tackles for loss, just one year after having 22.5 sacks, which set a league record.

That year, Watt was named to his fourth straight Pro Bowl (he would earn his fifth straight in 2022) while receiving his third straight All-Pro first-team selection and winning the Defensive Player of the Year award. .

However, Pittsburgh needs help with their pass defense, which ranked 19th in yards and 28th in touchdowns last season.

They have Kenny Pickett, who was a rookie and heavyweight as their starting quarterback last season, as well as former Pro Bowler Mitchell Trubisky behind him at QB2.

But with Deonte Johnson, George Pickens and Allen Robinson II, the Steelers have a decent cast of wide receivers to give Puckett and Trubisky some reliable playmakers at wide receiver.
