Why Texans Really Traded DeAndre Hopkins

Why did the Houston Texans really trade DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals? Money, primarily.

Last week, Houston Sent Hopkins to Arizona in a deal that was widely panned by all observers. The near-universal opinion seems to be that the Texans got absolutely fleeced in a transaction that cost them their best wide receiver.

Many could not help but ask after the fact: why would Bill O’Brien pull the trigger on a move so ridiculous?

According to Albert Breer, the answer is simple: money.

“Money is the driving factor in all of this for the Hopkins and the Texans,” Breer reported.

“Even in the Cardinals press-release announcing they traded for Hopkins, they acknowledged that stating in their article, ‘He reportedly wants a raise and new contract – a topic that would likely had been known to the Cards prior to a deal.’”

Will this trade ultimately cost the Texans Deshaun Watson? Time will tell.
