Report: Texans Hopkins will hold out for new contract
The Houston Texans will hold their first training camp practice on Sunday morning and according to an ESPN report, star receiver DeAndre Hopkins will not be there as he is holding out seeking a new contract.
Hopkins is entering his 4th season and is coming off of a spectacular season that earned him his first trip to the Pro Bowl.
Hopkins is playing under his rookie contract signed in 2013 as the team's first round selection. The team exercised the 5th year option on his contract in April, meaning he has two years remaining on his contract.
He held a football camp in Houston just last week and addressed his contract situation
Hopkins asked about the range in salary he was looking for said, I don't know about a range, I just want to be treated for what I'm worth, that's fair to say, right?"
"That's between my agents and the Texans," Hopkins said about negotiations and how he hoped things would play out.
"I love this city, I don't want to play anywhere else but here. The rest will work itself out hopefully."
Hopkins finished third in the NFL last season with 111 receptions and 1521 yards while catching passes from four different starting quarterbacks.
He has 3,533 career receiving yards in three seasons which already place his 4th in team history.
