DeAndre Hopkins is returning to the Houston Texans.
One day after choosing not to report to training camp, the star wideout is ending his brief holdout, a source close to the player told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Hopkins on Sunday announced his change of heart via a statement provided to ESPN:
Hopkins said in the statement he's disappointed the Texans have elected to not enter contract negotiations. He said his focus is now on 2016 season. With two years left on his rookie contract, Hopkins is slated to make just $1 million in base salary this season. He's obviously unhappy with his situation, but hoping that a team-first approach will help him land a new pact in time.
