QB Watson urges fans not to protest on behalf

HOUSTON — Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson on Monday asked fans who planned what was initially called a protest on his behalf to cancel the event “for the sake of public safety.”

“Although I am humbled I ask that whoever is organizing the march cancel for the sake of public safety,” Watson said in a tweet. “Covid is spreading at a high rate & I don’t want any fans to unnecessarily expose themselves to infection.”

The protest appeared to be related to Watson’s unhappiness with the team after the process it used to hire general manager Nick Caserio.
