“I just wrote, ‘Always love. Keep going, keep grinding,’” Watson told reporters after the game. “I wrote ‘MVP’ on it. He’s like a brother to me. I’m proud of him. That’s what I told him and to keep going and stay healthy and keep leading his team.”
For Watson, writing “MVP” on Jackson’s jersey was about the respect and admiration that he has for the 32nd overall pick from the 2018 NFL draft.
“It’s love,” said Watson. “It’s all respect. He played well today. So, there’s a lot of season left. Who knows what can happen?”
Ultimate respect between Deshaun Watson and Lamar Jackson.
