Could J.J. Watt be any nicer? Apparently, he could. As if raising millions of dollars for hurricane victims wasn't enough, the Pewaukee native doubled down on his generosity by promising to provide his new signature Reebok shoe to an entire U.S. Army unit in Afghanistan. 

Watt was teasing the sneaker release on Wednesday when he received a query from a soldier about whether they could ship to Afghanistan. 

After prompting for another Twitter user, Watt asked for sizes for the entire unit so he could send them shoes.

Watt, who plays for the Houston Texans, is out for the season with a broken leg.
