Texans GM Rick Smith said the team is "absolutely intent" on signing walk-year WR DeAndre Hopkins to an extension.

Coach Bill O'Brien seemed to bristle at the implication Hopkins had a down year in 2016, saying he made big plays down the stretch and the falloff in production was not his fault. Houston clearly knows they have a special player in Hopkins, and they should work hard to get him signed to an extension this summer.

According to NFL's Network's Ian Rapoport, before trading Jamie Collins to the Browns, the Patriots offered Collins to the Texans for DeAndre Hopkins.

They got a hard pass from Houston, but it's notable the Pats had interest in Hopkins, whose contract expires after 2017. However, the Texans have said an extension is a priority and Houston would certainly franchise tag Hopkins if one isn't reached. Hopkins had a down year in 2016 statistically, but that can mostly be attributed to Brock Osweiler's incompetence. Hopkins recently said he loves playing for the Texans and isn't pushing for a trade.

DeAndre Hopkins said he loves playing for the Texans.

"I love this organization and what this team is doing," Hopkins said when asked about a contract extension. "It seems like we're getting better and better every year, so why not?" Hopkins still has a year left on his rookie deal, but owner Bob McNair said extending the receiver will be a priority this offseason. Despite the quarterback situation, it sounds like Hopkins is very open to the idea.

Texans owner Bob McNair said signing DeAndre Hopkins to a long-term extension is a priority this offseason.

McNair said the same is true for free agent CB A.J. Bouye. Unlike Bouye, Hopkins has one year left on his rookie contract at just under $8 million. Bouye will probably come first, but Hopkins is next line of business. He's going to want at least the $14 million per year Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant got on recent deals. A.J. Green is the highest-paid receiver at $15 million annually.

DeAndre Hopkins caught 6-of-9 targets for 65 yards in the Texans' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

Same as in these teams’ previous two meetings, the Patriots used Logan Ryan to guard Hopkins in man coverage and Ryan won. The Texans often moved Hopkins into the slot, but Ryan chased him there and allowed Hopkins zero separation with occasional safety and linebacker help. Hopkins’ biggest play was a 19-yard reception in the third quarter with the Texans backed up in their own territory. Ultimately, there was no way the Patriots were letting Hopkins beat them in this game. Still only 24 years old, Hopkins enters a contract year in 2017.

DeAndre Hopkins (knee) isn't listed on the Texans' final injury report for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Patriots.

Nuk is ready to go after putting in a limited week of practice. He reeled in four-of-eight targets for 56 yards when he faced the Patriots back in Week 3. Logan Ryan was asked to shadow him in that game.
Jan 13 - 1:31 PM

DeAndre Hopkins said his knee is "excellent."

Hopkins tweaked his knee in last week's Wild Card win over Oakland, but his status for this week's Divisional game against New England was never in question. Nuk was shadowed by Logan Ryan when these teams squared off in Week 3. A similar approach could be in play Saturday.
Jan 12 - 3:09 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Hopkins picked up the injury in Houston's Wild Card win. He should be fine for Saturday's game with the Patriots. Hopkins will see a lot of Malcolm Butler.
Jan 11 - 4:40 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 5-of-9 targets for 67 yards and one touchdown in the Texans' Wild Card win over the Raiders.

Hopkins did all of his damage in the first half with Brock Osweiler only completing two passes after the break. Most of his production came on a 38-yard sideline shot over the top of David Amerson before scoring a two-yard touchdown on a quick slant against Sean Smith just a couple plays later. Osweiler has struggled badly with deep balls all year, but the two were able to hook up on one. Hopkins will either get the Chiefs or Patriots on the road next week.
Jan 7 - 8:30 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 7-of-11 targets for 123 yards in the Texans' Week 17 loss to the Titans.

Even with Brock Osweiler attempting 40 of the Texans' 48 passes, Hopkins looked revived for the second time in three weeks. He still finishes the regular season with an extremely disappointing 954 yards despite today's season-high total. The Texans won't have much of a prayer in the Wild Card round without a big game from their best offensive player.
Jan 1 - 5:49 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 3-of-6 targets for 43 yards in Week 16 against the Bengals.

Hopkins was held catchless in first half. He led Houston in receiving on a night Tom Savage threw for 176 yards. Savage wasn’t an upgrade for Hopkins after he saw 17 targets last week. Hopkins has an easier matchup against Tennessee in Week 17.

DeAndre Hopkins registered eight catches for 87 yards on 17 targets Sunday in the Texans' Week 15 win over the Jaguars.

He lives! The 87 yards were Hopkins’ most since Week 2. Nuk had a tough matchup against Jaguars rookie Jalen Ramsey but played him to a draw, winning the second half after mostly being bottled up during the first 30 minutes. Hopkins left plenty of points on the table. Most glaring was a touchdown he probably should have reeled in but lost on his way to the ground during the third quarter. But the targets kept on coming and Hopkins still showed explosiveness when given the opportunity. Nuk is still an excellent receiver but has been trapped in an embarrassingly stagnant offense this year. Tom Savage probably isn’t the long-term answer in Houston, but he certainly outplayed Brock Osweiler on Sunday. That should give Hopkins owners reason for optimism next week against the Bengals.

DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is no longer on the Texans' injury report for Week 15.

Hopkins turned in a limited week of practice. There was never any doubt about his status for Week 15. Hopkins had the year of his life in 2015 but has taken a huge step back this year with overmatched Brock Osweiler under center. Consider him a WR3 until further notice.

DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

The Texans just seem to be managing Hopkins' reps, though it would be nice to see him get in a full session on Friday. With Brock Osweiler apparently not going anywhere, Hopkins remains mired in WR3ville.
