Getting selected in the first round of the NFL Draft results in a pretty big paycheck
So when the league's newest members see those signing bonuses from their rookie contract, a lot make sure they take care of the ones that helped them along the way.
Texans first round draft pick and former Gainesville High School graduate Deshaun Watson bought him mom a car on her birthday last week.
The 12th pick of the draft bought her a new 2017 Jaguar.
Happy Birthday Mama! I love you & you deserve your first official car! Enjoy it! "Had to cop her the '17 Jag" 💯🤘🏾 pic.twitter.com/gVE2wzzh6k— Deshaun Watson (@deshaunwatson) April 29, 2017
The trend continued this week. Jacksonville Jaguars' draft pick Leonard Fournette also bought his mother a car. No, it wasn't a Jaguar, but a Mercedes Benz GLE Coupe, which starts at $110,000.
He made mom cry.
Great job, guys.
