Tom Brady believes that Deshaun Watson can be great for the Houston Texans.

We’ve been hearing nothing but good things since the Houston Texans drafted quarterback Deshaun Watson this past April.

With the Texans having joint practices with the New England Patriots this week, future Hall of Fame quarterback and current Patriots’ player Tom Brady jumped on the Deshaun Watson bandwagon.


"“He’s had such a great college career and got picked by a great team. So watching him play, he has a great future. He has all the ability and it was great to meet him,” the 40-year-old Brady said. “Pro football players watch a lot of college players because Saturday night we’re at the hotel and Clemson was on a lot. Obviously they won a lot of big games. It was great to meet him.”"

Does it really get any better for Watson?

Well I guess it could. Watson could end up as the Texans’ starter this season. He certainly made a case with his play during last week’s game against the Carolina Panthers.

It might be overwhelming for Watson, but if I’m the Texans I would give him one or two series with the first-team offense either this week or next week in order to see how he can perform against a starting NFL defense.

It wouldn’t hurt.

It’s not like Tom Savage has solidified himself as a franchise quarterback in the NFL.

With everything Houston had to give up in order to trade up and draft Watson, he deserves a shot to win the starting job.

I understand the Texans wanting to bring Watson along slowly, but it sounds like he’s been picking up the offense without a problem and continues to get better everyday.

The Texans and head coach Bill O’Brien may need to rethink their strategy on how they’re handling Watson’s development and give a chance to start right away.
