Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson attended a protest in George Floyd's hometown of Houston on Tuesday.

The 46-year-old died May 25 after now-former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin pinned Floyd's neck to the ground with his knee for more than eight minutes while Floyd was handcuffed.

Floyd's family led the march to Houston's city hall.

Houston mayor Sylvester Turner said he appreciated Watson's presence at the event, as well as those of Texans linebackers Jacob Martin and Peter Kalambayi.
