J.J. Watt declares Craig Biggio a Hall of Famer

Craig Biggio missed election to the Hall of Fame by 39 votes on Wednesday. Of the 37 players on the ballot, the former Astros second baseman was the closest to being enshrined. So, what was he missing?

About 39 J.J. Watts.

The Texans' defensive end showed support for Biggio by wearing his No. 7 jersey to a Wednesday press conference, calling the fomer ballplayer "a Hall of Famer in my book."
