Star rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson is bullish on the Texans' future following his electrifying first NFL season being cut short by a knee injury. Watson can't wait until next year as he continues to diligently rehabilitate a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Following an ultra-successful collaboration with Bill O'Brien this year, the first-round draft pick from Clemson made it abundantly clear that he wants to continue playing for the Texans coach. O'Brien is entering the final year of his contract in 2018 and has said he wants to return. O'Brien has been the subject of unconfirmed speculation about his job security. "We have a great relationship," Watson said in a telephone interview while presenting the National Gatorade Player of the Year award to Mater Dei quarterback and USC football commitment J.T. Daniels. "Coach OB is fun to play for. He's very tough on you. He wants you to be successful. I would love to have coach OB back and I'm ready to have him with me for my whole career."
