Rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson donated his first game check Wednesday to three women who work in the Texans’ cafeteria and lost everything in the flooding after Hurricane Harvey.
During a break in preparation for Sunday’s game against Tennessee, Watson went to the cafeteria inside NRG Stadium and presented Denisse Benavides, Isabel Sanchez and Maria Rincon with one check each to help them recover from the flood.
The women were overwhelmed. They cried, hugged him and thanked him for his generosity.
Watson has a $465,000 base salary paid in 17 game week installments. Each check he gave out was for $9,100.
