Watson, who came to New England by way of Dallas before the 2016 season, has made 23 regular-season appearances for the Revs, including 19 starts. Showing his versatility, Watson has played all along the back line and in the midfield.
Although he collected one goal and one assist during the regular season, Watson's finest moments came during the US Open Cup, where he had two goals en route to helping the Revs to the Final.
Watson remained an important part of the Jamaican National Team. He recently scored a vital goal against Guyana in a Carribean Cup match that saw him don the captain's armband.
