Watt eager for fresh start, family reunion in Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (AP) Turns out, Derek Watt's reunion with younger brother T.J. has its limits. Like say, sharing a roof for the first time since college.

"I know (T.J.) doesn't want that," Derek Watt said with a laugh on Thursday, about a week after agreeing to join T.J. on the Pittsburgh Steelers. "My wife doesn't want that (either)."

It may be one of the few respites the two get from each other after Derek signed a three-year deal to join T.J. in Pittsburgh. While Derek admits the chance to share the same locker room with T.J. - something the two did in both high school and in college at Wisconsin - played a factor in his decision to head east after four years with the Chargers' organization, it wasn't the main reason the fullback chose the Steelers over a handful of other interested teams.
