Houston fans on Monday apparently were planning to come together to show their support for the city’s most popular athlete.
But with the COVID-19 pandemic still ongoing, the man of the hour believes it’s in everyone’s best interest for the event to be nixed.
Deshaun Watson took to Twitter to address Texans fans who were planning to hold a march in support of the star quarterback. Watson, of course, reportedly is at odds with the Houston organization, which has sparked trade rumors surrounding the three-time Pro Bowl selection.
Kudos to Watson for speaking out and prioritizing the health and safety of all. It’s easy to understand why Houston fans would want to hold such an event, but it would not be a wise decision at this time. Support for Watson can be showcased in many other ways.
As for what the Texans organization could do for Watson, hiring the QB’s preferred option for the team’s next head coach potentially could start the healing process.
