J.J. Watt is one of those athletes who just gets it.

The Houston Texans defensive end played catch with a group of servicemen before Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. As cool as that was, he wasn't done saying thanks to those who protect us.

On Tuesday, Watt sent pizza to the Houston police and fire departments. Along with the pizza, the 25-year-old NFL star also wrote a heartfelt note.
