Deshaun Watson "working real hard" in offseason

Deshaun Watson is having a productive offseason.

The Texans quarterback, who guided his squad to an 11-5 mark and an AFC South title, has spent the first few months of the year working to get better for 2019 and beyond. In a Wednesday press conference at the Combine in Indianapolis, Watson's head coach described what the quarterback's doing.

"Every year, every player, every coach in the League is looking to improve upon what they did the previous year," Bill O'Brien said. "And he's working real hard right now."

O'Brien said Watson "did some really good things" in 2018, as he completed 68.3 percent of his passes for 4,165 yards, and tossied 26 touchdowns and nine interceptions. O'Brien said the third-year pro has been a regular around NRG Stadium and the Houston Methodist Training Center this offseason.

"We're not allowed to talk football with him and things like that right now," O'Brien said. "But he's been in the building and it's been good to see him, and we'll get working on everything in April."

O'Brien also pointed out that while Watson and the Texans weren't able to accopmplish "the ultimate goal" of winning a Super Bowl, 2018 was an impressive season because it was the quarterback's first full slate of 16 games after exiting mid-year of 2017 with a knee injury.

The Texans begin the offseason conditioning program on April 15.
