    Texans' Bill O'Brien stands by trade, says DeAndre Hopkins wanted raise

    In his first public comments since trading DeAndre Hopkins, Houston Texans head coach and general manager Bill O'Brien cited the wide receiver's desire for "a raise" as one of the reasons for his trade to the Arizona Cardinals.

    Last month, Houston traded Hopkins, a reigning three-time All-Pro selection, and a 2020 fourth-round pick for running back David Johnson, a 2020 second-round pick and a 2021 fourth-round selection.

    "I would say the deal with Arizona was a deal that we felt was in the best interest of our team," O'Brien said on Friday in a roundtable for Texans season-ticket holders. "DeAndre Hopkins was a great football player here. He made so many plays for us. We love DeAndre Hopkins. But he had three years left on his deal and he wanted a raise. And we weren't going to be able to go in that direction. We felt like we had a great offer from Arizona that involved picks. That involved an excellent three-down running back who is hungry and humble and just can't wait to get started. David Johnson is going to be a great addition to our football team.

    "There's a lot of things that go into trades. Lot of thoughts that go in. How much are you going to take on contractually? How much does it take to buy that second-round pick, that No. 40 pick? What type of player are you bringing in? What type of player are you losing and what is in the best interest of the team?"

    Texans CEO Cal McNair and executive vice president of football operations Jack Easterby also spoke on the call, both praising the moves made by the team during the NFL's free-agency period.

    I mean they did it with Campbell. Made his deal a 5 year deal with 4 voided years that allowed them to give him like 10m with only like 3m against the cap.

    unfortunately, the time for this move was before giving Derek Kennard $7mm a year

    Kennard only counts $2.5m against the cap this yr. He is supposed to be $8 mil in ‘21 but the cap is supposed to go up significantly.

    Clowney isn’t going to get anywhere near 15-20 that he wanted. If he ain’t signed by now that tells you everything you need to know.

    he’s going to get around 10.

    I wouldn’t mind kicking the tires on Suh

    Have a local doctor do it and have the team doctor watch and direct through a video link.

    I really don’t understand how they can’t go to the team complex and not take a physical?

    people in this country are still going to work everyday and these guys can’t figure out how to get these guys physicals
