Deshaun Watson is about to become a very rich man, and Cam Newton couldn’t be happier for the young quarterback.
Watson on Saturday agreed to a four-year, $160 million contract extension with the Houston Texans. The deal locks in 24-year-old Watson, recently the subject of trade speculation, as Houston’s franchise quarterback.
Newton, now a member of the New England Patriots, took to Instagram to congratulate Watson.
“Man I’m so proud of you, my killa,” Newton wrote to Watson after quoting a Jay-Z song. “Been riding with you since Gainesville High, my boy. Seen you have a vision and you execute it to a tee. Happy for you, Ma Dukes, and the rest of the fam.”
By the way, the Patriots and Texans are scheduled to meet Sunday, Nov. 22, in Houston.
