Deshaun Watson made it on HBO.
Even though the Texans quarterback on vacation in Madrid Sunday, his name was mentioned on last night's episode of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'.
Larry David is the creator, writer and star of the long-running HBO comedy. He's also a Jets fan. In Sunday's episode, at a funeral for a friend of David's, he and the deceased's wife discussed the friend's passing. The wife said her husband, a New York Jets fan, woke in the middle of the night once and yelled "Watson". She asked David if it was a Sherlock Holmes' reference. David's reply set her straight.
"No, I think that's a reference to Deshaun Watson, who the Jets passed on drafting in 2017," David said.
New York drafted LSU safety Jamal Adams sixth overall that spring. The Texans traded up with Cleveland and took Watson 12th.
Watson is traveling in Europe. On Sunday in Madrid, he took in 'El Clasico', a soccer match between Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The Pro Bowl quarterback isn't the only Texan who's made a splash on television this offseason. J.J. Watt hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live in early February.
The Texans will be back in NRG Stadium on April 20 for the start of the offseason conditioning program.
