And Watt took no time at all to celebrate.
According to the Houston Chronicle's Brian T. Smith, Watt was back in the weight room at 4 a.m. local time Tuesday. Not only that, but it was so early that the cleaning lady had to let him into the building.

#Texans' Watt had to be let in by a cleaning lady at 4 a.m. Was locked out of facility. Thought team played joke by pass changing code.— Brian T. Smith (@ChronBrianSmith) September 2, 2014
Watt has explained before that he views his NFL duties as a full-time job, and he can drink beers and hang out like a regular guy once his time there is done. So this shouldn't come as a huge surprise.
