DeShaun Watson Parents: Meet Deann Watson
Derrick Deshaun Watson is an American football quarterback for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League (NFL).
Deshaun Watson was selected in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans after leading his college football team, the Clemson football team, to a national championship in 2016.
Watson guided the Texans to consecutive division titles in 2018 and 2019 and led the league in passing yards in 2020.
He also received Pro Bowl honors in each of his three seasons as Houston’s primary starter has the highest career completion percentage of all time (minimum 1,500 attempts), and is second in all-time career passer rating.
On March 18, 2022, Watson and the Texans’ 2024 sixth-round draft pick were traded to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for the Browns’ first-round draft picks in 2022, 2023, and 2024, as well as the Browns’ third-round pick in 2023 and fourth-round picks in 2022 and 2024.
As part of the trade, Watson signed a new, fully guaranteed, five-year, $230 million deal with the Browns, making it the largest contract and most guaranteed money in NFL history.
Who is Deann Watson?
Deann Watson is the mother of Deshaun Watson. There’s enough information about his mother.
Here is how Deshaun Watson Surprises Mother Deann with Home Makeover on ‘My Houzz’ Show.
Houston Texans star Deshaun Watson has used his newfound riches from the NFL to renovate the home of his mother, Deann Watson.
In the third season premiere of My Houzz, Watson pays for renovations to the kitchen, living room and dining room of his mother’s house in Gainesville, Georgia.
“She deserves it,” Deshaun said, via the Associated Press (h/t ESPN.com). “It’s been a solid home for us for … over 12 years now. [But] living room, kitchen and dining area, those areas need a little touch-up. Everything she went through, this is really the smallest thing I can do for her.”
Prior to the 2017 NFL draft, Watson told Matt Connolly of The State he was excited about starting his professional career to help take care of his mom after she raised him as a single parent:
“That’s one of the biggest things that I’m looking forward to is being able to take care of my family, take care of my mom, make sure that she’s settled and that whatever she needs she can get, just kind of enjoying life and let her travel around. I don’t want to spoil the treat. It’s my mom’s birthday that weekend after I get selected—so something special for her.”
Former NFL running back Warrick Dunn helped Deann Watson get her house through Habitat for Humanity when Deshaun was 11 years old.
The Texans traded up to make Watson the 12th overall pick in the draft. He led them to an AFC South title in 2018 after throwing for 4,165 yards and 26 touchdowns.
