DeAndre Hopkins Holding Out Of Texans' Camp 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Jul 30, 2016 5:10 pm

DeAndre Hopkins is holding out of training camp as he seeks a new deal from the Houston Texans.

Hopkins, who is entering the fourth and final year of his rookie contract, did not report for the start of the Texans' camp, according to sources. He will be subject to fines of $40,000 for each day of camp he misses.

Because the Texans picked up the fifth-year option available on all first-round pick contracts, Hopkins technically has two seasons left on his deal. He also has a $445,000 roster bonus due Wednesday, the fifth day of camp, that he will miss out on if he hasn't returned by then.

Hopkins was a first-round pick in 2013, and the Texans extended their 2011 and 2012 first-round picks [J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus] as they entered their fourth seasons.

I hope that they don't mess around with this and just get a solid deal hammered out quickly.
