Whether Watson was focused on his professional life or just life in general is up for interpretation. Regardless, Cam Newton saw that tweet and hit the retweet button to show support for Watson.
The relationship between the 31-year-old Newton and the 25-year-old Watson goes back a long way, as Watson played in Newton’s first 7-on-7 tournament as a high school star from Florida.
