Texans GM Rick Smith said he likes to keep his negotiations “in-house,” but also made it clear that he wants to keep WR DeAndre Hopkins in Houston “for a long time.”
“I think if you look at our team … we like to keep our good players,” Smith said, via Sarah Barshop of ESPN. “[We keep] as many of our good young players that we develop, that we draft and that can help our football team win. We try to keep those guys around. [Hopkins] certainly fits that category and so we’re hopeful that he’s going to be here for a long time for us.“
