"His brother is hoping he can play fullback once or twice when we play them this year so he can try to run over his brother," Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler said in a recent interview with Missi Matthews of the team's official site (h/t Bryan DeArdo of 247Sports).
The Steelers selected T.J. Watt with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft at the end of April.

While J.J. is a three-time Defensive Player of the Year with the Houston Texans, he has always had high praise for his younger brother.
"He's much better than me at that age," he said on The Dan Patrick Show prior to the draft (via Stephen Pianovich of Land of 10). "He's much more refined. He's got better instincts than I had at that age."
T.J. has a good chance of making an early impact with the Steelers, although attempting to stop his brother could be entertaining. The elder brother has three career touchdowns on the offensive side of the ball.
The Texans will host the Steelers at NRG Stadium on Christmas Day in Week 16.
