NFL rookie, Georgia native Deshaun Watson gives 1st paycheck to cafeteria workers

The former Clemson star helped women affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Houston, TX (WLTX) - Former Clemson star Deshaun Watson is having a good start to his NFL career on the field. But it's what he did off the field recently that's getting noticed right now. 

Watson, who's now a rookie with the NFL's Houston Texans, split his first paycheck to three cafeteria workers for the team who lost much of their belongings during Hurricane Harvey.

"Anything else y'all need, I'm always here to help," Watson told them.

The moment was captured on video by the Texans. One of the ladies he gave the check two started crying. Watson gave all of them a hug.

Watson himself knows a thing or two about the kindness of NFL players.  When Watson was 11-years-old, he and his family received a home with the help of former NFL Star Warrick Dunn and his charity, as well as Habitat for Humanity.
