Hopkins has seen the same from the Houston Texans' new quarterback. He said as much during a Twitter Q&A with fans on Wednesday evening.
Their relationship is one of the most important to watch with the Texans this offseason. The Texans' quarterback dramas during the past three seasons have certainly affected Hopkins more than most other players on the field. He powered through it. Hopkins became the first player in NFL history to have 100-yard receiving games catching passes from four different quarterbacks, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
Still, chemistry can only help, the story went on to say. Osweiler has a chance to be a nice upgrade at QB for the Texans and Hopkins, who really exploded on to the scene last year and is one of the top WRs to draft in fantasy this season.

When it comes to NFL quarterback contracts, a rising tide doesn’t necessarily lift all boats. Just ask Ryan Fitzpatrick, who gained no leverage from contracts given to players like Sam Bradford (two years, $35 million) and Brock Osweiler (four years, $72 million). Ultimately, a quarterback’s value is driven not by what others have gotten, but by what anyone will pay this specific player.
Fitzpatrick, despite the Bradford, Osweiler, and now Andrew Luck deals, can’t get eight figures per year from the Jets, or anything close to that from anyone else. Next year, that same problem could apply to Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor.
The story went on to say Taylor is due to earn $3 million this year, which when it comes to quarterbacks isn’t peanuts but pressed peanut sweepings. For Taylor, his value next year likely will be driven by the market for mid-level quarterbacks, if anyone out there chooses to pay him a mid-level contract, which currently is in the range of $15 million per year. Luck’s new contract doesn’t change that.
Osweiler averaged 16.6 FP in the six games that he started and finished. That equates to middle of the road QB2 numbers, and his receiving corps won't be quite as good as it was in Denver. DeAndre Hopkins is a nice target, but there is no Emmanuel Sanders on the Texans' roster at the moment. Osweiler will be in the streaming conversation if things go well.

Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 17. Manning may be active, but he’s expected to serve as the backup to Brock Osweiler in the short term.

Denver Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Tuesday "nothing's changed'' in the team's quarterback plan, so Brock Osweiler will prepare to start the Broncos' regular-season finale Sunday against the San Diego Chargers.
It will be Osweiler's seventh consecutive start. Kubiak said he will also meet with Peyton Manning either Tuesday evening or Wednesday to talk about what level of participation Manning will have in the team's practices this week, the story said.

It's a big day for Peyton Manning.
Earlier this week, Denver Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Manning would have a "big workout" on Saturday to evaluate the quarterback's progress in his rehab from a partially torn plantar fascia in his left foot.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday on NFL Network that the Broncos are trying to gain understanding on two key questions: Will Peyton Manning be able to practice next week and will Peyton Manning ever be physically able to play for the Broncos again, the story said. Manning returned to practice on a limited basis last week, but suffered a setback and had to sit out last Friday. This week, prior to Saturday, the quarterback has only been able to rehab and throw on the side. Saturday marks a pivotal for Manning's future in Denver and possibly his NFL career. If it goes poorly, we could have seen the last of Manning in a Broncos jersey, the story speculates.
