Benjamin Watson might not be able to handle another life-altering event this week. Two is plenty.

The former Northwestern High School football standout signed a three-year contract with the New Orleans Saints on Monday. His wife Kirsten went into labor around noon Tuesday in Cleveland. The dutiful husband and father signed his contract Monday then turned around and headed right back to Ohio, shedding a suit and tie for scrubs.

“I’m telling you man,” Watson said Tuesday, “it’s been a crazy week.”

After a healthy birth for mother and son Tuesday afternoon, both the family and the football team can celebrate new additions. Watson, who was an unrestricted free agent, can also celebrate another nice contract with which to take care of his growing family, this time with an NFL contender.

Besides Grace (4-year-old), Naomi (2 1/2), and Isaiah (1), there is “Baby Boy Watson,”
I am pleased we are adding players with "5 quarters" stamina
