Draft Scout *DeAndre Hopkins News
07/30/16 - wr DeAndre Hopkins didn't report for training camp and is holding out.
Hopkins is entering the fourth year of a $15.552 million rookie contract that included a $3.926 million signing bonus and a total of $6.181 million guaranteed.
The Texans officially placed Hopkins on the reserve/did not report list. He can be activated from that list whenever he reports to camp. However, Hopkins is subject to fines of up to $40,000 per day for missing camp. The Texans' first day of practice is Sunday.

A four-year, $27 million contract extension was reached for linebacker Whitney Mercilus at the deadline last year to exercise his fifth-year option.
Hopkins didn't issue a comment publicly on the situation. However, on social media, Hopkins retweeted Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu: "Guys can under perform and get cut, over perform & don't get paid. Life.
