The Houston Texans locked up defensive end J.J. Watt with a six-year, $100 million contract Monday, making him the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL.

And Watt took no time at all to celebrate.

According to the Houston Chronicle's Brian T. Smith, Watt was back in the weight room at 4 a.m. local time Tuesday. Not only that, but it was so early that the cleaning lady had to let him into the building.

Watt has explained before that he views his NFL duties as a full-time job, and he can drink beers and hang out like a regular guy once his time there is done. So this shouldn't come as a huge surprise.
