WATCH: Deshaun Watson will never forget seeing millions in his bank account


by - Assoc. Editor -

Humble beginnings didn't stop Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson from achieving his dreams to be play quarterback in the NFL.

Watson was interviewed as part of ESPN's 'The Boardroom' about several topics, including the shock and awe when he first saw his first NFL check go into his bank account.

"That was crazy. I woke up, I was still in the team rookie hotel, and they were like your first money gonna hit the bank at 2 a.m," Watson said in the following video (5 min mark). "We gotta get up at 6. What do I do? I set my alarm at 2:01. I woke up, and I saw it in my bank account and was like this is crazy. I'm a millionaire. I know taxes got to come out, but still, I have never seen this much money in my life."
