Richard Sherman Says Texans’ Deshaun Watson Best QB To Have Played Seattle

Published

When it comes to praise, there isn’t much praise a rookie quarterback can get that can surpass that of one of the best defensive units in the league and one of their top players.

But Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman had plenty of things to say, all positive, about Houston Texans’ rookie Deshaun Watson who has impressed many around the league.

Sherman spoke to the MMQB on Sunday night and discussed his long embrace with the rookie Texans quarterback after the two teams played earlier in the day.

“‘You played the best game any quarterback has ever played against us and we’ve played all the legends. I respect how you hung in there and kept battling and battling” Sherman said of what he told Watson.

Watson’s 4 touchdowns against Seattle brought his season total to 19 through his first 7 games breaking a record previously held by Kurt Warner, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

“My God, Houston’s so lucky” Sherman continued.

“By next year he’s going to be a top-five quarterback in this league, and that includes the two big dogs [New England’s Tom Brady and Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers]. He makes you dig to the deepest part of your competitive juices to beat him”.

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson came away impressed by Watson as well.

“He’s a special, special player, and I’m going to love watching him play in the next few years,” Wilson told The MMQB.com.

“He was so good today, so special. I told him on the field, ‘God is good. Keep putting the hard work in. It’ll keep showing.'”

Chris Johnson Retires as Titan

Former NFL running back Chris Johnson signed a one-day contract with the Tennessee Titans so that he can retire with the team he has spent the best years, and the majority of his NFL career with.

Johnson also believes that if he was a feature back, he could still surpass 1,000 yards rushing in a complete NFL season

“Shoot, that’s not even a question” Johnson said, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessee Titans’ official team website . You put me in an offense where I’m the starting back, there’s no way I wouldn’t get 1,000 yards,” said Johnson. “I could still do it, but it’s time to move onto the next situation.”

“Tennessee, that’s the first organization that gave me a chance to make my dreams come true,” Johnson said. “I have so many great memories in Tennessee and was able to do so many things with the Titans. It’s an organization I always want to be considered a part of.

“I grew up in Tennessee. I went from being a kid to a grown man here. I might have grown up as a kid in (my hometown of) Orlando, but I was still a kid in Nashville when I got there. The team and the city, they’ve always shown me so much love. I have great memories from my days with the Titans, so many on the field and in the city. I’ve always loved Tennessee, and I always will because I’ve always felt so much love.”
