With his brother T.J. Watt witnessing firsthand the locker room drama involving the Pittsburgh Steelers, J.J. Watt got a chance to address the situation Thursday. 

Appearing on an episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, the Houston Texans star compared the Steelers' drama to the Kardashian family. 

“It does seem very dramatic," Watt said. "It’s like somebody that’s watching the Kardashians, and I can call one of the Kardashians. I’ll call my brother, I see everything on TV, and I’ll be like, ‘OK, give me the real story.’ And it’s pretty wild. It’s pretty wild."

Watt isn't the only one who has made the comparison between the Steelers and the Kardashians. In fact, Pittsburgh wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster did the same thing during a Jan. 31 appearance on ESPN's First Take (h/t ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler).  

"I think everyone has to stop being divas," Smith-Schuster said. "I think we need to stop being the Kardashians and just play ball."

The good news for Pittsburgh is there hasn't been any real negative stories to come out in nearly one month. Unfortunately, the Steelers still have to find some resolution to the situation with Antonio Brown after his reported altercation with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger prior to Week 17.
