DeAndre Hopkins trade

The Texans upping the ante on Texas stupidity. :lol:

Houston Texans get: RB David Johnson, 2020 second-round pick, 2021 fourth-round pick
Arizona Cardinals get: WR DeAndre Hopkins, 2020 fourth-round pick

Houston traded away arguably its second-most valuable player, star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, netting oft-injured running back David Johnson and a second-round pick in the process

Johnson is now three years removed from his only productive NFL season. He missed almost the entire 2017 season with a wrist injury and has been a replacement-level back over the last two seasons. The Cardinals' offense instantly got better when they replaced him with Drake. Johnson's $10.2 million base salary is already guaranteed for 2020, and $2.1 million of his base salary in 2021 guarantees in five days. Throw in $960,000 in per-game roster bonuses and the Texans are on the hook for more than $13 million for Johnson over the next 12 months. Johnson's deal is about $11 million underwater.

That half of the deal alone is a disaster for the Texans. The other half -- shipping out an unquestioned, bona fide star at wide receiver for the 40th pick in the draft -- is somehow even worse

Individual better be damn careful until this forum dies years from now. If I get even a hint of your actual name and location, no advanced warning when I show. We will not be talking.

This has the smell of a personnel issue all over it. Someone wanted Hopkins gone. Maybe he got caught doinking someone's wife?
Regardless, the Texans could have gotten a whole fuck load more for Hopkins than they did. Shit, the Vikes just got 4 draft picks (including a 1st rounder) for Stefon Diggs!
Unless of course, they traded him for practically nothing just to insult and humiliate him.

Maybe DeAndre had made it perfectly clear he was never resigning with them. I know there were reports that Hopkins and O'Brien didn't get along at all.

He had three years remaining on his contract and wanted the team to tear it up and improve the terms.

Also, this was an O'Brien call so if he doesnt go 12-4 and make it at least to the AFC Championship game, he's done

Did Houston Texans coach Bill O’Brien really meet with DeAndre Hopkins and make a reference to Aaron Hernandez before he traded his star wide receiver?

Until Wednesday morning, it would be insanely preposterous to even consider the notion. But now, after Michael Irvin’s comments on ESPN’s “Get Up” morning show, the notion is far less preposterous.

The former Cowboys wide receiver said that Hopkins told him that he met with O’Brien before he was traded to the Arizona Cardinals. In that meeting, Irvin said Hopkins told him that O’Brien said the last time that he had to have a meeting of this nature was with the former Patriots tight end, who was convicted of murder in 2015, and that the coach didn’t like the fact that Hopkins had children with multiple women.
