According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Texans owner Bob McNair watched DeAndre Hopkins practice, and said he was relieved the short protest was over.
“I’m happy that he’s back,” McNair said. “I think it’s in his best interest for him to be here.
“We’ll deal with his contract at the proper time. We take care of our players and we’ll take care of him.”
Hopkins has two years left on his rookie deal, and based on last year, is grossly underpaid. The Texans have made a point of not dealing with contract extensions for guys with multiple years left (unless that guy is J.J. Watt), the story said. Perhaps the big question is can Hopkins get this out of his head and focus on 2016.
