Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson emerged as a breakout star in 2017 before his rookie season came to a crashing halt due to a torn ACL. Now, Watson could continue to improve, according to teammate DeAndre Hopkins, which is a scary thought for 31 other teams.
"The possibilities, what we can do is limitless, not just him and myself, but this whole team," Hopkins said of Wilson to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. "He runs this whole team and he does a great job."
"The way he studies and our communication on the field, we’re always talking in between reps about what we can do better," Hopkins added. "So, that’s something that he’s always had, but just something that he’s improved on - just us communicating and trying to get better reps.”
Hopkins is coming off the best season of his career, recording 96 catches for 1,378 yards and a league-best 13 touchdowns to earn first-team All-Pro honors for the first time, all aided by Watson's brilliance.
Watson is expected to lead the Texans' offense without any setbacks from his injury. Entering his sophomore campaign, he has a chance to anchor one of the NFL's most dangerous quarterback-receiver tandems.
