Deshaun Watson donates first NFL game check to Harvey relief

Deshaun Watson did an awesome thing this week.

Former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson, now the starting quarterback for the Houston Texans, signed a four-year, $13.8 million contract this past summer after being drafted No. 12 overall. It looks like he’s spreading some of that money around in a great way.

This week, the Texans dropped a video that shows Watson giving his first game check to three NRG Stadium employees who were affected by Hurricane Harvey.
