Will Texans extend J.J. Watt's contract?

The Houston Texans have a pair of interesting contract quandaries as training camp nears. Andre Johnson, who is 33 and has three years remaining on his current contract, continues to holdout, because he wants to be traded. On the other end of the spectrum is 25-year-old J.J. Watt, who is under contract through 2015 after the Texans picked up the fifth-year option on his contract this offseason.
Time will tell how things will work out with Johnson, but the Houston Chronicle's John McClain expects the Texans to give Watt an extension sooner than later.
"... Watt, 25, won't play under his current contract in 2015. The Texans' philosophy for their best players has been to extend their contracts with a year remaining," McClain wrote.
