JJ Watt announced his retirement from the NFL barely a month ago, but it did not take long for fans to start buzzing about his next move.

Watt shared a photo on Twitter Monday that showed him and former teammate DeMeco Ryans when the two were with the Houston Texans. He did not leave a caption.

Many fans took the leap that Watt was trying to drop hints about a reunion with Ryans. The San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator is the favorite to be named the next head coach of the Texans , so some have wondered if Watt would have interest in joining Ryans’ staff.

Of course, Watt could have simply been showing support for a former teammate who is about to make a huge career move. Watt has already been campaigning for Ryans to land a head coach job .

Ryans, 38, played for the Texans from 2006-2011. Watt was drafted by Houston in 2011, and he said Ryans was a huge mentor for him during Watt’s first NFL season. The photo the three-time Defensive Player of the Year shared probably has more to do with that than any future coaching plans Watt may or may not have.
