The Houston Texans postponed the first day of their offseason training program as heavy rain and dangerous flooding in the Houston area has left many roads impassable and caused severe damage to homes and buildings. Star defensive end J.J. Watt still managed to make his way to the Texans facility anyway, and Snapchatted a few photos.

After the photos started to go viral, Watt fired back at those questioning why Watt traveled to work on an off-day when citizens have been advised to stay off the roads.
