Arizona Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt offered to help pay for the funeral of a grieving fan who took to social media to sell Watt’s merchandise to help raise money for her grandfather’s services.

Jennifer Simpson posted on Twitter Wednesday, selling a pair of Watt edition sneakers and one of his Houston Texans jerseys to raise money for her grandfather’s funeral.

"I have a pair of @JJWatt women's edition of Reebok shoes size 9 $60. I’ve worn them twice," she said in her post, tagging the five-time Pro Bowler. "They are great shoes, I'm only selling because we are raising money for my grandpas funeral. I also have a Watt women’s XL Texans Jersey $30. Anyone interested?"
