For The Win – This will be the best thing you watch or read about the NFL today, and it comes courtesy of Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson. Already impressing with what he’s doing on the field, Watson shines even brighter off the field.
At a time when many are demonizing NFL players, Watson selflessly gives up his first game check to help out three female employees in the Texans’ cafeteria. All three lost everything in the flooding from Hurricane Harvey which impacted the greater Houston area in August.
Watson shocked the women in the cafeteria in a powerful display of human compassion. The young quarterback showed his appreciation for those who help make his career more successful. It’s a beautiful gesture which makes a huge impact on their lives.

As a first-round rookie earning a salary of $465,000, Watson gave up just over $29,000 to the women. It’s a wonderful gesture that he didn’t have to do.
