Texans players, Houston celebrities react to Deshaun Watson's contract signing

Deshaun Watson signed a contract extension on Saturday, making him the Houston Texans quarterback through the 2025 season. Not only were Texans fans everywhere delighted, Watson had some famous friends from his past join him on his Zoom press conference.

"You are the epitome of everything that's good and right with this world and I'm just so thankful to be a part of your life," Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said. "It's a blessing to just have a seat to observe and watch a young man just grow and mature and equip himself and transform his life. You're going to have a lot more great moments."

"I couldn't be happier to be here and to congratulate you on a moment in your career that, you know, we don't work for this, but this is something that comes along with the hard work," Astros pitcher Justin Verlander said.

Houston Texans players also took to social media to share their excitement about playing alongside Watson for six more seasons.
