In just his third NFL season, Hopkins caught 111 passes for 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns from four different starting quarterbacks.
During the offseason, the Texans gave Hopkins some help, signing quarterback Brock Osweiler to a four-year, $72 million contract in March and drafting two receivers, Will Fuller and Braxton Miller, who should give him some help in the passing game.
Osweiler got to work right away to get to know the Texans' star receiver. Osweiler started the process of building a relationship with Hopkins and other Texans receivers when he invited them to work out in Arizona before the start of the offseason conditioning program, the story said. In June, Osweiler told reporters that he and Hopkins have a "tremendous relationship" and that he respects the receiver's work ethic. Offensive coordinator George Godsey said he has seen the bond and the chemistry grow between Osweiler and Hopkins this offseason, and that it is something both players have worked at. It's obviously good news for Hopkins, who also seems to have some help talent-wise with an emerging Fuller who continues to get positive press in camp.
