The Houston Texans announced Sunday that they’ve activated WR DeAndre Hopkins from the reserve/did not report list.
- The Texans also removed OT Jeff Adams from the active/PUP list.
This comes just a few hours after Hopkins elected to end his holdout and returned to the team’s training camp.
Hopkins would have been subject to fines of $40,000 for each day missed. Field Yates points out that Hopkins had a $445,000 roster bonus on August 4th if he is on 90-man roster. However, he wouldn’t have received this if he’s still on the reserve/did not report.
Hopkins, 24, was taken with the No. 27 overall pick back in 2013. He was in the final year of his four-year, $7.64 million rookie contract and will make a base salary of $1 million for the 2016 season.
In 2015, Hopkins appeared in all 16 games for the Texans and recorded 111 receptions for 1,521 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 6 receiver out of 121 qualifying players.
