Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Jul 31, 2016 8:01 pm

DeAndre Hopkins will report to camp with the Houston Texans despite his disappointment in not having an extension.

"I too am disappointed that the Texans organization has elected not to enter into contract negotiation to secure my future as a Texan," the statement read. "I have expressed my sincere position regarding my contract status and with sound mind have expressed my stands (sic) to the Texans organization.

"My focus also is on the 2016 season and to help my team reach our ultimate goal.

"Having said that I am returning to the Houston Texans to play for a Super Bowl in Houston, Texas. ... We are excited about returning to the team and grind this camp."

Hopkins is entering the fourth year of his rookie contract and is set to make $1.4 million this year.
