Deshaun Watson reason to stay No. 3: He’s loved by the fans
This might not be the most important reason for Deshaun Watson to stay with the Houston Texans, but it deserves to be on the list. No matter what team Watson plays for in 2021, he’ll be loved and cheered by the fan base of that team. Staying with the Texans would mean more because fans of the team have waited for a player with his talent basically since the inception of the franchise in 2002.
When Watson was drafted by the Texans in 2017 as the 12th overall selection, the Houston Texans moved up in the draft to select him, and other than drafting J.J. Watt in the first round, and DeAndre Hopkins, no other selection in Texans history is even as close to important than when Deshaun Watson’s name was written on the draft card.
Some fans of the Texans even marched in support for Watson on Monday, many have made it very clear they will no longer cheer for the team if Watson is traded, and no quarterback that has ever worn a Texans helmet has been admired and supported as much as Deshaun Watson has since joining the franchise.
Watson was the NFL’s leading passer this past season, and every fan of the Texans knows how important he is to the team. Imagine how poor the 2020 season would have been without Watson under center. That is why fans love Watson so much … they respect his talent level and know he’s a great person on and off the field. Watson is a quarterback Texans fans are proud to have on their favorite team.
