Given just how dominant Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson was during a rookie last season, his current state of mind has to be a scary proposition for opposing AFC South defenses. Well Houston fans will be thrilled to hear that Watson is slated to be a full participant for training camp later this summer by coming off last year’s ACL injury…
And if that ACL is nearly as strong as his confidence, those defenses should be petrified.
“I’m light years away from where I was last year, coming in as a rookie,” Watson says. “Everything was going so fast, a lot of information at that time. But having a full season and offseason with coach (O’Brien) and coach Sean Ryan, being able to advance my game and take my game to another level, it’s been great.”
So wait, you’re saying the game is going to slow down for a kid that put up 21 total touchdowns in seven games as a rookie? And that things are going to seem even easier for a second year QB who turned the anemic Texans offense to the highest scoring one in the league?
Fun fact, the Texans scored an average of 33.2-points a game in his six starts and just 14-points per game in the ten he missed.
