HOUSTON – Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is asking fans to go home after reports of a planned rally at NRG Stadium Monday.

Watson took to Twitter to tell fans he appreciated the support but wanted them to stay home for safety purposes.

“I’m hearing there is a march planned on my behalf in Houston today,” Watson said. “Although I am humbled I ask that whoever is organizing the march cancel for the sake of public safety.”

Watson also commented about concerns of the rising cases of COVID-19.

“Covid is spreading at a high rate & I don’t want any fans to unnecessarily expose themselves to infection,” Watson said.

This comes after reports emerged that Watson is still upset with the Texans organization and wants out of Houston.
