J.J. Watt has decided to sign with the Arizona Cardinals, where he'll reunite with quarterback Kyler Murray.

No, the two never played on the same team, but they met six years ago when Murray was a senior at Allan High School in Texas, according to a photo that the second-year Cardinal posted on Twitter on Monday.

Watt, who requested to be released from the Houston Texans in February after 10 seasons, announced that he signed with the Cardinals on Monday. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, he signed a two-year, $31 million deal with $23 million guaranteed (h/t Josh Weinfuss of ESPN). 

Also pictured was Minnesota Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns, so maybe he'll be the next one to head to Arizona.
