Bill O'Brien revealed on Friday that the Houston Texans are "working hard" to sign Deshaun Watson to a long-term extension.
Watson made less than $3.8 million in 2019, which was just 4.88% of the Texans' cap. He is scheduled to make $4.4 million during the 2020 season.
"Deshaun is a great player, an even better person, and we want him here for a long time," O'Brien said. "... I know that we're working hard. We're not going to really talk about it in the media, but obviously we feel so strongly about him and the future of him in this offense, in this organization, and we want him here for a long time."
Patrick Mahomes signed a 10-year, $503 million extension earlier this month as a fellow member of the 2017 draft class.
