Deshaun Watson’s contract is worth a total of $177.54 million with nearly $111M in guarantees. Other than Patrick Mahomes 12-year deal, this is the largest total contract, as well as guarantee in NFL@history.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 5, 2020
Asked about the deal, agent @DavidMulugheta confirmed it.
So Deshaun just got PAID. And it was about damn time! Obviously it was a no brainer to lock him up long term. There’s not a better QB1 in the world to build your franchise around.
Since the birth of the Texans franchise in 1999, we’ve never had a franchise QB1. I mean think about the QB1 journey we’ve had to go on to finally get our guy: David Carr, Matt Schaub, Brandon Weeden, T. J. Yates, Tom Savage, Ryan Mallet, Brock Osweiler, Brian Hoyer, SAGE ROSENFELS. Damn that’s a depressing list. Bottom line, it has been a long fucking time coming.
And for the haters that don’t think Deshaun’s worth the money, please see below:

Said he touched his eye mid-play to make sure it was still there.
