Deshaun Watson is a wealthy man in Houston.
On Sunday, the Houston Texans agreed to extend quarterback Deshaun Watson to a four-year, 160 million dollar extension. Since being drafted 12th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. Watson has quietly become one of the top 10 best quarterbacks in the league.
In three years, the two-time Pro Bowler has completed 67 percent of his passes, thrown 52 touchdowns and only 21 interceptions in the last two years.
What has been most impressive about Watson is his resilience. He has also been in the top ten in being sacked. In the last two and a half years, the 24-year-old starter has been sacked 125 times.
Watson has led the Texans to back to back playoff appearances with a 1-2 playoff record.
