Today, Gil Brandt has been tweeting about the NFL Auction’s sale earnings and such.
A couple of hours ago, Brant tweeted, ” NFL auction the NFL raised $1 million in sale memorabilia; 100% of net proceeds donated to league and team charities.” He also tweeted, “Included in the memorabilia sale were game-worn jerseys for J.J. Watt (sold for $14k), Jim Brown ($50k) and Johnny Unitas ($90k).”
That shows you that J.J. Watt isn’t just that good ole boy to the Houston area, he’s a good guy to the NFL fans all around. His jersey sold among the great Johnny Unitas as one of the top highest purchases.
