DeAndre Hopkins may be one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, but he is being paid like one of the worst players in the NFL, and that is because he is still on his rookie contract.
Hopkins is set to earn less than $1.5 million this year in the fourth year of his rookie contract. His production would indicate he deserves to be paid like one of the top wideouts in the game. Last year, he caught 111 passes for 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns, playing with inferior quarterbacks.
While Hopkins production has been amazing, GM Rick Smith says Hopkins will not be getting a long term deal right now.
Full quote from #Texans GM Rick Smith on Hopkins: “There is not a negotiation happening at this point. He’s under contract for 2 more yrs.”
