    Butler: Texans' Deshaun Watson 'an upcoming Cam'

    Deshaun Watson reminded the world Sunday why he was a national champion. The rookie quarterback went toe-to-toe with the New England Patriots in a slugfest at Gillette Stadium before ultimately falling to Tom Brady, 36-33.

    Watson diced up Bill Belichick's defense to the tune of 301 passing yards on 22-of-33 throws, two touchdowns and two interceptions (the latter coming on a last-second Hail Mary), and he ran for 41 yards on eight keepers.

    In a place many rookies have gone to get destroyed, Watson impressed wire to wire.

    "He's a handful," Patriots corner Malcolm Butler said afterward, via transcripts distributed by the team. "[He was] running around, people diving at him, missing him. That's a great guy. That's an upcoming Cam Newton."

    Behind a wobbly offensive line, Watson's mobility is a difference-maker. In just his second start, Watson wasn't deploying a dink-and-dunk operation, either. Instead, the first-round pick pressed the ball down the field time and again.

    "His leadership," Butler said of what impressed him most of Watson. "You see him leading his offensive line, leading some of the veteran players, just keeping his composure, playing the game and not letting anything get too big for him."

    After struggling for spells in his debut, Watson showed the strides he can make each week.

    "He's an exciting player," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "He's a player that never says die. You're always in the game with him. He can make plays on his own. Like all rookies, he has a long way to go but he's shown up pretty well the first two starts.

    "I thought Deshaun played his heart out. He's a sharp kid. He's a fun guy to coach. He gets better every day. He's a special kid."

    Despite the loss, Sunday indicated the Texans might have finally found a long-term answer under center.

    The Texans are expected to have wide receiver Will Fuller on Sunday, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. Fuller was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice.

    “He’s trending in the right direction,” Texans coach Bill O’Brien said.

    Fuller’s return will give Deshaun Watson his top four wideouts for the first time this season.

    Fuller fractured his collarbone Aug. 2. He returned to practice Sept. 18 but was inactive last week against the Patriots.

    The Texans drafted Fuller in the first round in 2016 to provide a complement opposite DeAndre Hopkins. With a 4.28 time in the 40-yard dash, Fuller is the fastest player on the team’s roster.

    He finished his rookie season with 47 catches for 635 yards and two touchdowns, while also dropping five passes on 92 targets.

    Doubt it. Base salaries are lower than you think. I bet it’s around 30K. Not chump change either way. Carson Wentz is like 31K a game.

    This story on Watson has exploded. All over the news, online .... just on Twitter its amazing not just by how many have retweeted the story but who has retweeted it. People are blown away that this "rookie" stepped up like he did. They are seeing what we've seen the last 4 years.

    Remember when people trashed this QB class and said franchises should wait for Darnold? Yikes.

    This will always be known as the draft where Watson fell to 12. It will always be the draft where the Bears sold their soul to take the wrong guy

    More seeing your team trade up to the 10th overall pick in the draft, and thinking that your childhood team was about to select the most important player in Clemson history. Then finding out we drafted some bum from West Texas who's only claim to fame is throwing the ball fast and 70 yards.
