Texans' Deshaun Watson donates game check to cafeteria workers

NRG Stadium workers affected by Hurricane Harvey

Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson donated his first game check to three cafeteria workers at NRG Stadium who were especially affected by the flooding from Hurricane Harvey.

Watson recently walked into the cafeteria with envelopes wrapped in a ribbon for the three women.

"For what you all do for us every day and never complain, I really appreciate you all, so I wanted to give my first game check to y'all to help y'all out in some type of way," Watson told the woman in a video shared by the Texans. "Here you guys go."

Watson, who has a base salary of $465,000, donated a check for $27,353.

The rookie isn't the only Texans player to step up in the wake of Hurricane Harvey as defensive end J.J. Watt started a fundraising campaign that raised more than $37 million.
