    Say what you want about the Texans, they have a pretty good history of taking care of their guys. Really they've done so to a fault. I'm sure something will get worked out.

    lol the first guys they bring up are Baldwin, Keenan Allen and Hurns. Hopkins is light years ahead of those guys.

    They're already sinking a ton of money into DE and QB. Even Lamar Miller makes more than a RB should. Paying a WR big money has never been a good idea.

    Arguably the best WR in the game. I don't blame him

    3 big money vets that immediately come to mind that might become a casualty to a Hopkins extension- Duane Brown, Cushing, JJoseph.

    Not really. We have a lot of big money contracts that can easily be cut to make room if necessary. Texans have shown they'll take care of their players, and almost to a fault as some have pointed out.

    Brown probably was a bit better last year but Hopkins is younger

    Brown is better, though he also benefits from a better QB. It should be close between them.

    Brown is the best WR in the NFL. Hopkins is probably 4th/5th.

    Pretty accurate. In my opinion...

    1. Brown
    2. Julio
    3. Odell
    4. AJ Green
    5. Hopkins

    Im okay with losing JJo, Brown and would be extremely sad to see Cushing somewhere else but they are all declining and replaceable at this point. Especially JJo, with Kareem and the KJ playing like they are.

    Not taking anything away from Brown but he has a hof qb throwing him the ball. Hop has had turd after turd at qb but still putting up insane numbers.

    There goes the Texans' hope/fear that he would seek/accept an unfair deal.
