Deshaun Watson was drafted to the Houston Texans (What? Like a day ago?), and he hasn’t played one game, but he’s already spending that NFL money to take care of his mom.

On Saturday, the former Clemson great took to Twitter to show off his mom’s new birthday gift.

This was his first big purchase with his NFL salary. Watson took his mom as his date for the draft and won us when he burst into tears reading a letter from his mom on draft day. Watch this, and try not to tear up.

That’s a nice purchase and a much better use of money than some of the ridiculous shit many of his fellow rookies are going to waste money buying. And yes, if he wants to buy his mom a car as a token of his gratitude then so be it. He’s slotted for a 13 million dollar plus contract, one that will be almost all guaranteed. As long as he keeps his large splashy purchases to a minimum and gets himself a good agent, lawyer, and financial advisor he should be fine. Also, maybe watch ESPN’s 30 for 30 Broke like 2 dozen times.
