In the midst of NFL controversy, a football player is trying to do some good for the fans who have been affected off of the field.

Deshaun Watson, the rookie quarterback of the Houston Texans, gave his first season’s paycheck to three NRG Stadium cafeteria workers who had lost everything during Hurricane Harvey.

Since the QB’s salary is $465,000, the paycheck is estimated to be a little over $29,000.

In a video released by the football team’s Twitter page, the women can be seen tearing up at the compassionate gesture.

“Hopefully, that helps,” says Watson. “Anything else y’all need, I am always here to help.”

Watson is just one of many celebrities who have put forth time, resources, and finances to help hurricane victims. Hollywood stars, such as the Kardashians and Sandra Bullock, have already donated a few million dollars to Harvey and Irma relief charities.

J.J. Watts, another player for the Houston Texans, raised over $37 million alone through his hurricane relief fundraiser.

Finally, all five living former U.S. presidents have teamed up to create a relief campaign for Hurricane Irma and Harvey victims.
