hes 27 and locked up for 3 years.  i would jump at that.   he takes a lot of pressure off a young qb whether it be this year or next that they start.

Id offer 34 right now for him

That's pretty steep but i'd probably agree.   I always think of faulk going for a 2 and a 5 when i value these things.

This came from Florio. He has been off his rocker the last couple of days.

The Texans are a player away from winning it all. The Watson-Hopkins connection will never be broken any more then the Harrison-Manning connection remained to the end.

No way we could be blessed by the Texans doing something that stupid...  Let's go out on the limb and say it's real, you try to trade him straight up for OBJ or something?

He'd be worth every penny; I'd trade a first round pick for him and not look back. I think he's the best receiver in the league. But the Texans aren't likely to trade him, and certainly not to the Colts.

I would be all over that.

 

Cardinals send RB David Johnson and a 2nd Round pick to the Texans for WR DeAndre Hopkins and a 4th round pick. The Texans would've never traded him within the division to us.

They should have just traded a first for Nick Caserio last year. I don't know what BOB is doing down there...

Wow!!!!!  Is there some legal trouble or character issues?  That trade just looks foolish if not.

Driving to get lunch, the notification pops up on my phone. I begin to laugh and yell “WHAT?!” quite loud. 
 

Unless there’s something else going on, Cardinals just got a steal.

O'Brien is nuts.  Hopkins has been a centerpiece to the Texans recent success.  Maybe he's been a crutch for Watson & limiting his growth but my goodness.  And Tannenbaum on ESPN talking about it looks like a great trade for both...  Who is he trying to fool???? 

 

What a great day for the Colts.

He really is off the wall. This is not the first "head-scratcher " he's made.

I understood the Clowney deal, because I think Clowney is somewhat overrated and I wouldn't spend a bunch of money on signing him. But this one is pretty outrageous.

Yep, they traded 2 1sts and a 2nd for Tunsil... after they drafted a LT in the 1st, then went on to trade away Clowney for a 3d and Hopkins for a 2nd... this is SO BAD.

Desperation. I think there was a pick swap somewhere in the Tunsil trade, no?

 

Clowney? Meh. 

 

Hopkins? Outrageous.

Hopkins wanted a new deal.

 

So does everyone else. They were at least a year away from him actually trying to force the action on a new deal.

they got a 4th and 6th back, which is nothing when you are giving up 2 1sts and a second.

Obrien seems to really believe in the Bill Bellichick approach.  If you look the Pats they never really paid big salaries to their WRs.  Also I think Bill wants to get more into the running game to protect his QB even more.  He's got some big cahunas for this trade because it could get him ran out of town.

Cool. Good move Bill. Getting rid of a top 3 WR for a run of the mill RB and picks that aren't at the top. 

I'd be thrilled as a Texans fan. The only real thing they have going on is their top tier talent and now they have less.

I believe in Warren Buffet's investing approach too.  But I haven't been able to duplicate it yet.

 

So....

Tell that Billy O because he thinks he can duplicate Bellichick.  Also why Obrien took on the role as GM just like Bellichick.

Just reading that Hopkins and O' Brien really disliked each other. I thought the Clowney deal was understandable but how about what he gave up for L Tunsil ? I thought he gave up too much...

So the new GN send the biggest super star on the team on a train to AZ. The media says it was over money. Living in Houston I think I smell smoke. Booger McFarlin says BOB & Hopkins did not get along. Really? The coach does not like his stats as well? BOB should be spelled with an additional O.

Seems like they could have done better than this.  Best WR in the league should have brought a first round pick
