Texans Guarantee $49 Million to DeAndre Hopkins

Sarah Barshop of ESPN, per Adam Schefter, is reporting that the Houston Texans have signed wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins to a five-year, $81 million contract extension with $49 million guaranteed. Hopkins' $49 million guaranteed is the largest for any wide receiver in the NFL.

The 27th overall draft pick in 2013, Hopkins went over 1,200 yards in both 2014 and 2015 before his numbers nose-dived trying to catch passes from Brock Osweiler last season. Since being drafted, Hopkins ranks 12th in the league in receptions, sixth in receiving yardage, and tied for 20th in receiving touchdowns.
