Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has accumulated his fair share of accolades throughout his career, so he knows when he’s undeserving of praise.

Watt played three games last season before undergoing season-ending back surgery in September.

Based off his reputation alone, Watt was named to the NFL Network’s Top 100 list, coming in at No. 35 this year.

Watt denounced the selection Monday.

Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris and safety T.J. Ward protested Watt’s selection as well.
