While the NFL players were stealing the spotlight with their disgraceful actions Sunday and Monday night, one player has decided to give back to others.
Deshaun Jackson, a Texans rookie quarterback, decided to donate his whole first NFL paycheck to three workers in NGR Stadium’s cafeteria whose homes have been destroyed by the flood that Hurricane Harvey left behind. He said:
“For what you all do for us every day and never complain, I really appreciate you all, so I wanted to give my first game check to y’all to help y’all out in some type of way. Here you guys go.”
Watson makes $465,000 per year, and the check he donated to the women was $27,353. Watson divided his paycheck into three separate checks and wrapped them as a gift, then went to the cafeteria and gave them to the three women.
“Hopefully, that’s good and that can get you back on your feet. And anything else y’all need, I’m always here to help.”
Watson now has a lot of money, but that wasn’t the case when he was little. He and his family have been on the receiving side of similar kindness, they once received a house built by Habitat for Humanity.
Here is the touching video of Watson’s humanity.
